"The Iraqi Oil Ministry says production at the country's largest oil field has been cut in half by bomb attacks on domestic oil pipelines. Ministry spokesman Assem Jihad said Wednesday that pumping from southern Iraq's Rumaila field fell after Tuesday night's two explosions to 700,000 barrels per day, down from 1.4 million barrels."
