HOUSTON (AP) - Defense contractor KBR Inc. said it has banned
the sue of personal cell phones by its employees in Iraq for
security reasons.
In an e-mail to The Associated Press on Saturday night, KBR
spokeswoman Heather L. Browne confirmed the company had notified
its employees in Iraq that use of personal cell phones is
prohibited.
Browne said the decision was because of "a safety and security
concern." She declined to elaborate, but did say KBR officials are
reviewing the matter that led to the directive.
The Houston-based company split off from Halliburton in 2007.
