Explosions shook two central Baghdad hotels on Thursday evening, but there were no reports of casualties.
Two rockets struck the Burj al-Hayat Hotel, according to US authorities, while another blast was felt at the Rimal Hotel.
Both hotels are located in central Baghdad.
The Arab satellite station Al-Arabiya said on Thursday that American soldiers shot and killed one of its cameramen and wounded a correspondent who had been covering the attack on the Burj al-Hayat hotel .
The all-news station, based in the United Arab Emirates, said cameraman Ali Abdel-Aziz, was killed and correspondent Ali al-Khattab was wounded.
The US military said it had no information on the shootings of the correspondents, but it reported the shooting death of an Iraqi at a checkpoint, and the time and place of that death matched details reported by Al-Arabiya about the incident involving its Iraqi staffers.
The blasts followed more violence across Iraq coming ahead of the anniversary on Saturday of the start of the US-led war that ousted Saddam Hussein.
