Baghdad-Kirkuk Highway Reopens

According to a report from BasNews, the Baghdad-Kirkuk highway was reopened on Monday, having been closed since March 2nd due to attacks and threats from the Islamic State (IS, ISIS, ISIL).

For the moment, it is only open to personal vehicles, taxis and buses, and is not yet open to trucks.

The Shi’ite militia group Hashid Al-Shaabi is reported to be currently responsible for ensuring security on the highway.
