BAGHDAD, June 5 (KUNA) -- An explosion occurred at an oil reservoir in
Al-Zubair oil field with initial reports pointing at possible attack, said a
security source Sunday.
The source told KUNA that the explosion might have occurred because of a
terrorist attack targeting the facility.
The location was isolated so that firefighters could contain the situation,
said the source, adding that investigations were launched to determine the
cause of the explosion.
Meanwhile, several acts of violence in the capital had led to the death of
three Iraqi soldiers and the injury of three others while a senior official at
the Ministry of Planning survived an attempt on his life but suffered some
injuries as a result. (end)
