Political conflicts during his twenty-year rule led to clashes in the west with the Arab clans ''Banu Oqayl'' (from whom he temporarily seized ''Daquq'' in 998) and the ''Banu Mazyad'', as well as a campaign against ''Zahman bin Hendi'', lord of Khanaqin, whose family he destroyed in 999. In the east, there was fierce competition between him and the ''Hasanwayhid'' Kurds (his relatives through marriage). In 1006, ''Badr bin Hasanuya'' aided by ''Abul-Hassan Ali bin Mazyad'', sent an army of 10,000 men against ''Abul-Fath'', who was compelled to seek refuge with the Buyid vizier, ''Amid-al-Joyus Abu Ali Hassan bin Abi Jafar'' in Baghdad. In a treaty concluded that year between the two Kurdish (Kurdish people) dynasties, ''Abul-Fath'' declared himself a ''Hasanwayhid'' vassal. *''Hawler *''Renwen'' (Khanaqin, Iraqi Kurdistan) *''Xebat'' (Kurdistan) They together had whose grandson became powerful in central and southern Kurdistan.

The region under Baban rule stretched from the Little Zab river to the Sirwan (Diyala River). 52 people were killed and 65 wounded when two suicide bombers detonated themselves in Shi'ite (w:Shi'ite) mosques in the eastern Iraqi town of Khanaqin (w:Khanaqin), inhabited mostly by Shi'ite Kurds (w:Kurdish people).

, and, in March 1974, unilaterally decreed an autonomy statute. The new statute was a far cry from the 1970 Manifesto, and its definition of the Kurdish autonomous area explicitly excluded the oil-rich areas of Kirkuk, Khanaqin and Shingal Sinjar. In tandem with the 1970–1974 autonomy (Autonomous entity) process, the Iraqi regime carried out a comprehensive administrative reform, in which the country's sixteen provinces, or governorates, were renamed and in some cases had their boundaries altered. The old province of Kirkuk was split in half. The area around the city itself was named At-Ta'mim ( Wikipedia:Kirkuk Dmoz:Regional Middle_East Iraq Localities Kirkuk commons:Kirkuk

Port Sudan

. With rising oil revenues, the Sudanese economy was booming, with a growth rate of about nine percent in 2007. Sustained growth was expected the next year in 2008 due to not only increasing oil production, but also to the boost of hydroelectricity (annual electricity yield of 5.5 TWh) provided by the Merowe Dam. The independence of oil-rich South Sudan, however, placed most major oilfields out of the Sudanese government's direct control. In order to export oil, South Sudan must rely

'' was a modern tanker (Tanker (ship)) built for one of the shipping companies of Shell (Royal Dutch Shell), La Corona. She was new, relatively fast and by contemporary standards not lightly armed with a 4" 50 caliber gun on her stern and several machine guns for anti-aircraft use. Under Captain W. Horsman, she was now deployed between Fremantle (Fremantle, Western Australia) in Australia and Abadan (Abadan, Iran) on the oil (petroleum)-rich shores of the Persian Gulf. On her journey to Abadan, she would only enjoy the protection of a small corvette. HMIS ''Bengal'' (HMIS Bengal (J243)) (Lt. Cdr. W.J. Wilson, RNR) was one of the RAN-type Bathurst class corvette minesweepers, although she and three sister ships were allocated to the Indian Navy. She only had one 3-inch gun (a 4-inch gun was not available), which made her firepower barely enough to protect the ''Ondina'' from submarines, let alone from enemy surface raiders. The two ships departed Fremantle on 5 November 1942, expecting a long but uneventful trip. Following the flotation, Costain moved into civil engineering and worked first on the Trans-Iranian Railway and then at Abadan, Iran for BP. Losses on the railway, on Beckton sewage works and the costs of Dolphin Square caused financial problems, and Costain had to look for alternative funds when Barclays withdrew its overdraft facilities. In spite of the British embassy reports claiming the contrary, some sources claim that Reza Shah Pahlavi had allegedly brought Iran "closer" to Germany (Nazi Germany), which was also later used as a pretext for the British and Soviet invasion of Iran. Esposito, ''Islam and Politics'', p. 127 The British feared that the Abadan (Abadan, Iran) Oil Refinery, owned by the Anglo-Persian Oil Company, might fall into German hands — the refinery produced eight million tons of oil in 1940 and was thus a crucial part of the Allied (Allies of World War II) war effort. ) is a multi-purpose stadium in Abadan (Abadan, Iran), Iran.
