BASORA (IRAK), Nov. 6 (Reuters / EP) –

Iraqi anti-government protesters have blocked the southern entrance of the Nasiriya oil refinery on Wednesday, according to Reuters responsible for security and the oil sector.

Protesters have prevented the entry into the refinery of tank trucks that transport fuel to gas stations, which has caused fuel shortages throughout the province of Di Car.
