Security, Oil
(Voices of Iraq) - Armed groups set a number of oil tankers ablaze on the Falluja-Samarra road, a police source said on Tuesday. “An armed group burned more than 20 oil tankers on the Falluja-Samarra road between Anbar and Salah el-Din province and kidnapped a number of drivers on Tuesday morning,” the source told the independent news agency Voices of Iraq (VOI) on condition of anonymity.
“Most of the trucks’ drivers, from Anbar and Salah el-Din provinces, are carrying crude oil from Baiji refinery to export it to Jordan and Syria through Anbar,” he added. “A number of the kidnapped drivers managed to escape,” the source also said. The Falluja-Samarra road is 100 km north of Baghdad. It links Baghdad to Anbar and Salah el-Din.
