Iraqi Oilfield Attacked

Insurgents blew up a pipeline in Iraqi northern oil fields and killed two senior police officers in Baghdad

Insurgents blew up a pipeline in Iraqi northern oil fields and killed two senior police officers in Baghdad, as political leaders sized up their positions in a new government following the release of election results.

The attack occurred at the North Oil Company's Al-Dibbis oil field near Kirkuk, a top official said. The pipeline supplied oil for internal use and the damage will hamper the country's oil production, he said.

Insurgents also fired six mortars at a police station in central Baghdad, but there were no immediate reports of injuries, police said.

The violence comes after election officials announced the results of the Jan. 30 elections.
