Iraq Replaces Head of State Grain Buying Agency

By John Lee.

Iraq has reportedly replaced the head of its state grain buying agency.

According to a document reviewed by Reuters, Naeem al-Maksousi was replaced by Hassanein Mahdi Elwan, but the reason for the change was not immediately clear.

The Iraqi grain board is responsible for billions of dollars worth of wheat and rice purchases each year to supply the country's massive food rationing program.
