Pipeline Attack Halts Oil Exports

By John Lee.

Insurgents blew up the Ceyhan oil pipeline in northern Iraq on Monday night, halting the country’s oil exports via the Turkish port (pictured).

The attack took place near Tulool al-Baj, some 250 km north of Baghdad, a police source told Xinhua.

“The sabotage caused a huge fire at the scene and resulted in an oil leak, prompting authorities to halt the oil pumping”, he said.
