BAGHDAD (Reuters) - A bomb attack stopped oil flows through the Kirkuk-Ceyhan pipeline linking Iraq to Turkey early on Tuesday, Iraqi oil officials said.

The stoppage started at around 0230 GMT (10:30 p.m. Tuesday EDT). The pipeline has been repeatedly attacked by militants and has also suffered technical problems.
