BAGHDAD, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Trucked exports of oil from Iraq to neighbouring Jordan have been halted due to the deterioration of security in Anbar province, where militants have overrun a city, an oil ministry spokesman said.

The exact date exports halted was not clear, but Asim Jihad said the volume in question was between 10,000 and 12,000 barrels of crude per day. (Reporting by Raheem Salman; Writing by Isabel Coles; Editing by Dale Hudson)
