Insurgents set fire to a storage tank at an oil pumping station along Iraq's main export pipeline to Turkey on Monday, witnesses said.
Reuters television pictures showed huge flames and thick black smoke pouring into the air at the pumping station about 40 kilometres south-west of Mosul, in Iraq's far north.
Officials said last week that the line was pumping at about 500,000 barrels per day, but officials at Iraq's Northern Oil Company would not comment on pumping rates on Monday.
