A security source denied Saturday striking the US consulate in Basra by mortar shells, asserting that the alleged explosion heard at the vicinity of the consulate has not to do with the US consulate.


"The explosion heard at the vicinity of the consulate and Basra airport is due to an explosion of a war remnant, which had been contained," the source said.


He stressed that the US has reported to the local authorities and airport security the detonating of the war remnant.
