Iraq's Umm Qasr port expected to be fully operational on Monday or Tuesday: officials

BASRA, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraq’s Umm Qasr commodities port is expected to be fully operational on Monday or Tuesday, three port officials said, after it was shut down by protests sweeping southern cities.

The officials said all employees needed to return and the internet needed to be restored at the facility, which receives grain, vegetable oils, sugar and equipment for energy companies.
