18-Apr-2011 1:08 PM

Kuwait Airways will reportedly attempt to seize Iraqi oil assets in compensation for aircraft and equipment allegedly stolen during the first Gulf war, a lawyer for the firm said (Arabian Business, 17-Apr-2011). The airline is seeking to enforce a 2006 English Supreme Court ruling against Iraqi Airways when international legal protection of Iraqi oil assets expires on 30-Jun-2011.
