Iraqi Militants Seize Oilfields, Attack Air Base


Iraqi extremists attacked one of the country’s largest air bases and took control of a number of oilfields on Wednesday, just in time for the arrival of US Special Forces and intelligence analysts, coming to aid Iraqi security forces in their ongoing battle against an intensifying militant mutiny.

In light of the increasing insurgency in his country, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has given his support to disband the current cabinet and form a new one.
