Iraq crisis: Battle grips vital Baiji oil refinery

“The Iraqi army says it has driven off Islamist-led militants attacking the country’s biggest oil refinery amid reports that most of it is in militant hands. An official told Reuters the militants had occupied 75% of the Baiji refinery, 210km (130 miles) north of Baghdad. The army said 40 attackers had been killed, a claim which could not be verified independently. Government forces have renewed air strikes on militants elsewhere.”
