The Pentagon said Monday it had opened a criminal investigation into a subsidiary of Halliburton over allegations of overcharging for fuel delivered to Iraq.

The fraud investigation focuses on Halliburton subsidiary KBR, formerly known as Kellogg Brown & Root, a Pentagon spokeswoman said.

"The Defense Criminal Investigative Service, the criminal investigative arm of the inspector general's office, is investigating allegations on the part of KBR of fraud, including the potential overpricing of fuel delivered to Baghdad by a KBR subcontractor," she said.
