BASRA - Iraqi oil exports have so far not been affected after an attack on an oil storage tank in the south of the country, an Iraqi oil official said on Sunday.

The official said the tank near the Zubair oilfield had been isolated and the attack had not halted pumping to the Al Fao port where exports are dispatched.

The oil storage tank was hit early on Sunday by a bomb or a rocket, local oil and police sources said.
