Western allies condemn Iraq rocket attack
The firing of more than a dozen rockets in the northwest of the Kurdish regional capital Arbil on Monday wounded at least 14 people, as well as fatally injuring a contractor working for the US military.
"Together, our governments will support the government of Iraq's investigation into the attack with a view to holding accountable those responsible."
The barrage of 107 mm rockets -- the same calibre used in recent attacks in Baghdad -- was fired late Monday from around eight kilometres (five miles) west of Arbil.
They appeared to be aimed at a military complex inside the Arbil airport that hosts foreign troops deployed as part of a US-led coalition that has helped Iraq fight jihadists since 2014.
But they struck all over the city's northwest, including in residential districts where they wounded five civilians.
One US solider was among those injured at the airport, where at least three of the rockets landed.
The nationality of the foreign contractor killed has not been disclosed.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Tuesday he was "outraged" at the attack and pledged American support in holding those responsible to account, while the United Nations warned that tensions in Iraq could now escalate.
