Four pipeline workers have been killed in Iraq.

At least four Iranian technicians building a gas pipeline in Diyala province were killed in a bombing on Saturday morning, according to the Iraq Oil Report. The workers, who were travelling by bus at 8.30am on May 24th hit a roadside bomb.

This is the latest in a series of attacks affecting the energy sector in northern Iraq. The pipeline,which is under construction will send Iranian natural gas to the Mansuriya power plant and then down to Baghdad's Sadr and Quds power plants.

The pipeline is currently behind schedule partly because of worsening security in the area it is being build.
