Default Blast Hits Baghdad Water Supply

From Reuters, 8/17/03:

Blast Hits Baghdad Water Supply; U.S. Soldiers Shot

By Hassan Hafidh

BAGHDAD (Reuters) -

A major water pipeline in northern Baghdad was breached on Sunday,
flooding nearby streets and cutting off the supply to parts of the
Iraqi capital, after what locals said was a bomb attack.

Sabotage of fuel pipelines, power cables and water pipes has dogged
attempts by the U.S.-led administration to rebuild Iraq's decrepit oil
industry and restore basic services.

The main oil export pipeline to Turkey -- a crucial economic lifeline
for Iraq -- was shut down last week just days after reopening,
following technical hitches and a bomb attack that sparked a fire.

Paul Bremer, the U.S. governor of Iraq, said the closure of that
pipeline was costing the country $7 million a day.


The Bush-created quagmire continues.
