Iraq oilfield output suspended after attack

Iraq’s oil minister said on Monday that production at an oilfield near the northern city of Kirkuk remained suspended after an attack by IS on the weekend, Reuters has reported.

“What happened on Friday was a real threat to the oil installations, but the situation now is stable and under control,” Adel Abdel Mehdi told reporters during a visit to the oilfield.

“There is severe damage to the field which has halted production and damage also to the installations,” he said.
