Security forces fend off militants at Iraq
IRAQ (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Islamic militants attacking Iraq's largest oil refinery have been forced to back out.

Iraqi security forces repelled the militants after an overnight battle, killing 40-attackers according to officials.

A witness says militants still have their black banners at the refinery though.

The security official in Baghdad said the government force protecting the refinery is still inside Thursday.

The al-Qaeda inspired group Isis began their attack late Monday night.
