TimesofIsrael: 40 Evacuated After Attack on Iraq Exxon Site

An Iraqi intelligence officer says 40 workers for the energy giant Exxon Mobil Corp. have been evacuated from an oil-drilling site in southern Iraq after they came under rocket fire.

The officer tells The Associated Press that security reinforcements have been deployed to the site after a rocket hit before dawn Wednesday near the location of the Iraqi workers, wounding three. Iraqi officials said a Katyusha rocket hit the site in southern Basra province, striking a camp housing workers for Exxon Mobil and other foreign companies.

The official has spoken on condition of anonymity because he was not allowed to brief the press.

The official says that immediately after the attack, 16 Exxon Mobil workers were evacuated. Another 24 workers were later evacuated.
