Insurgents Fired Baghdad Oil Refinery

Iraqi insurgents fired mortars at Baghdad's main oil refinery on Saturday

Iraqi insurgents fired mortars at Baghdad's main oil refinery on Saturday as Egyptian diplomats prepared to leave following the murder of Cairo's kidnapped top envoy.

A huge fire broke out at the Dura oil refinery on the outskirts of the capital after it was hit by two mortar rounds, oil ministry spokesman Assem Jihad said.

Three people suffered minor burns, he said.
