The Jordanian embassy after the bombings
|Date||August 7, 2003|
|Perpetrators||Jama'at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad|
Witnesses in the area reported that the suspects parked their vehicle outside of the embassy, and left. A short time later the vehicle exploded. All of the casualties in the attack happened outside the embassy, and all were identified as being Iraqi. Inside the embassy there were only a few slight injuries reported, because the embassy was surrounded by a concrete wall which protected it from the bombing.
This attack was the first one where insurgents used a car bomb. Just a week later the first suicide attack was carried out by the insurgency in the attack on the UN headquarters in Baghdad.
