Katyusha rocket lands at oil hub in Iraq's Basra, injuring 3

Unknown assailants fired a Katyusha rocket at an area housing representative offices of several international oil companies in the southern Iraqi port city of Basra, wounding three Iraqis.

Citing the Iraqi police, Reuters said the projectile came down 100 meters away from the section of the site used as a residence and operations center by the US company ExxonMobil on Wednesday morning.

The police identified the casualties as workers.

The site, known as Burjesia, also houses the headquarters of Royal Dutch Shell PLC and Italy’s Eni SpA.

The agency also quoted a security source as saying that Exxon was preparing to evacuate some 20 foreign staff in the aftermath of the attack.
