Reuters reports that a bomb attack stopped oil flows through the pipeline from Kirkuk to the Turkish port of Ceyhan (pictured) early on Tuesday.

Iraqi oil officials said the stoppage started at around 0230 GMT (10:30 p.m. Tuesday EDT). The pipeline has been repeatedly attacked by militants and has also suffered technical problems.
