Oklahoma Congressman Ernest Istook was among five US House members at the American Embassy in Baghdad when a rocket exploded nearby on Sunday.

No one was hurt in the explosion. In fact, none of the lawmakers heard it; they were in the embassy basement at the time.

The delegation returns to the US Tuesday. Monday, they'll visit a training site in Jordan for Iraqi security forces.
