Yemen: Blast Hits Oil Pipeline In East


Unidentified militants blew up tonight an oil export pipeline in Shabwa Governorate in Yemen.

The 220-km-long pipeline was sabotaged and blasted, but the attackers escaped unhurt, security sources said.

The explosion came at a time when Yemeni authorities were trying to repair another liquefied gas pipeline in Radoum Town, which was blasted by Al-Qaeda militants last Friday.

Yemeni oil pipelines have repeatedly come under sabotage in the first quarter of this year, according to official reports.

Al-Qaeda has claimed responsibility for oil blasts, alleging it came in response to Yemeni air strikes at the network’s sites in Shabwa.
