Policing Iraq's oil industry

Police force vows to safeguard oil production following attacks of the pipeline network.

    Iraq's oil police force has the difficult job of securing the country's main source of revenue, but they lack the manpower and equipment to protect pipelines and infrastructure.

    The pipelines are vital to feeding the refineries across Iraq, but since the US-led invasion the network has been subject to frequent acts of sabotage.

    Al Jazeera's Omar Al-Saleh reports on how officials from the police force are determined to protect the country's oil production.
