Iraqis say Iran seizes oil well in southern Iraq

Baghdad, Iraq (CNN) -- Iranian security forces seized an oil well in southern Iraq on Thursday night, two senior Iraqi government officials said Friday.

Iran denied the incident took place and said that Iraqi authorities have not yet contacted the Iranian Embassy in Baghdad. Iraqi authorities didn't know whether Iranian forces still had control of the property on Friday.

The officials said Iraq's Foreign and Oil Ministries were mulling what steps to take, and state TV said Iraq's National Security Council was to meet Friday to discuss the incident.

Iraq and Iran share a long border, and high-ranking committees from both countries handle all border matters, an Iranian Embassy official said.
