Iraq closes border crossing with Iran due to floods - sources

BASRA, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraq on Saturday closed its Sheeb border crossing with Iran to travellers and trade until further notice, Iraqi security sources said, as flooding continues to submerge villages in the south of Iran.

The Sheeb crossing is in Iraq’s southern Miysan province.
