As Sunni militants and government militia battle for control of Iraq's largest oil refinery, a spokesman for the party of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said Thursday that the country's leaders feel "abandoned" by the international community.
Both sides are claiming control of the Beiji oil facility about 150 miles north of Baghdad. A witness tells the Associated Press that militants have hung their banners at the refinery, where a huge fire in one of its tankers are raging.
