Update from Iraq: A senior manager of the state-owned North Oil Company in Baiji, Iraq, said militants attacked parts of the refinery complex, leading to heavy clashes. A refinery employee said there had been casualties among security force personnel and that staff had fled.

Officials told AFP yesterday that the refinery had been shut down and many employees evacuated, because major towns seized by the militants, including second city Mosul, were no longer being supplied with refined products.
