Iranian troops leave the oil well but are still in Iraq


Iranian troops who for three days occupied a disputed border oil well left the facility during the night but remain on Iraqi soil, Iraq’s government spokesman said Sunday.

“The Iranian forces have pulled back 50 meters ( 164 FT) from the well and have taken their flag but we now demand they return to where they have come from and that negotiations begin on the demarcation of the border,” said government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh. AFP
