Attack on US base in Mosul.

What appears to be an Iraqi rocket hit a large US mess tent in Mosul today. Initial reports say at least 22 people are dead and over 60 wounded, mostly soldiers. I'm hoping that arachjournalism is ok and will check in, as he is based there.

Two reporters from the Richmond Times Dispatch were on hand and took these photos of what happened. They also posted two mp3 files (1, 2) with a satellite phone to describe the scene.
