New Blasts Of Iraqi Pipelines

Monday insurgents exploded a part of a domestic oil pipeline in northern Iraq

Monday insurgents exploded a part of a domestic oil pipeline in northern Iraq.
According to Colonel Mahmoud Ahmed, a bomb struck a section of a pipeline about 15 kilometres south of Samarra, which is almost 100 km north of Baghdad.

The pipeline transports oil from the Beiji refinery to the Dora refinery in Baghdad for domestic use.

Oil supply to the pipeline has been stopped to enable the fire to be extinguished. Insurgents bent on derailing Iraqi reconstruction efforts regularly attack the country's oil infrastructure.
