    10:35PM Turkey shuts border with Iraq, pulls out ambassador - BBC : The BBC reports that Turkey halted the movement of oil tankers through its border crossing with Iraq and told any tanker drivers already in Iraq to return to Turkey. Also, Turkey's ambassador to Iraq pulled out of Baghdad, leaving no Turkish diplomats in the city; the Turkish Foreign Minister said the decision was taken so as "not to leave the embassy exposed to the risk of uncontrolled acts". Finally, the parliament is expected to vote this week on whether to allow US troops to deploy in Turkey.
