Attacks cripple Iraq oil exports

Thamir Ghadhban said blasts on Monday and Tuesday had damaged a pipeline from the southern oilfields – severing the flow to the Basra oil terminal.

It was the second attack on the Basra terminal – one of the few operational outlets – in just over a month.

It comes two weeks before the US-led coalition is due to hand over power to an interim Iraqi government.

Sounds like the insurgents will be welcoming the new administration with a bang.
