An unexploded car bomb was discovered close to the coalition headquarters in Baghdad and U.S. soldiers were working to safely dispose of it, a U.S. military spokesman said on Tuesday.

Reporters on the scene said the bomb was believed to be in a vehicle in a car park used by visitors to the coalition compound in the "Green Zone", one of Saddam Hussein's former palaces which has been taken over by the U.S.-led military and civilian administration in Baghdad.

"There is an unexploded car bomb. Soldiers from the 1st Armored Division are working to dispose of it," the spokesman said.
