Bechtel wins giant Iraq contract

US construction giant Bechtel has landed a contract worth up to $680m (£433m) to help in the rebuilding of Iraq.
The deal is the fifth and by far the largest to be handed out by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), as part of the reconstruction and humanitarian effort in Iraq.

It covers infrastructure repair work on power generation facilities, electrical grids, municipal water systems and sewage systems.
