Reuters cited early information, from two US officials, concerning the attack in Iraq amid the early Thursday morning in Asia.

Key quotes

Two American personnel and one from Britain were killed and about a dozen people were wounded when 15 small rockets hit Iraq’s Taji military camp north of Baghdad on Wednesday.

The officials said it was too soon to assign blame. Any indication that Iran-backed militia was responsible could spark a new round of confrontation between the United States and Iran.

Market implications

With the news likely favoring energy prices, due to its impact on the oil supply, WTI rises to $33.82 following the announcement.
