Militants storm Iraq gas compressor station – security sources

Suicide bombers stormed a
gas facility in northern Iraq on Sunday and clashing with police
guards, security sources said.

It was not immediately clear if security forces had managed
to regain control of the AB2 gas compressor station, about 15 km
(10 miles) northwest of Kirkuk. There were expected to be
casualties among the police and personnel at the site.


There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the
attack, but Islamic State militants have previously targeted oil
facilities in the area with explosives.
