Attackers Blow Up Oil Pipeline in Shabwa province -Officials

Posted by FREE ADEN on July 2, 2009

Unknown attackers blew up an oil pipeline in southeast Yemen operated by a South Korean firm, causing a leak, police and industry officials said Thursday.

The attack took place Wednesday night in a region of Shabwa province that produces 10,000 barrels of oil a day.

Local police chief Sa??d Saleh al-Souleimany told reporters that the assailants planted an explosive device under the pipeline and detonated it from a distance.

Technicians were sent to repair the damage, which he described as not serious, after the unclaimed attack.

Yemen, a small oil producer, has for the past several years been the target of attacks on its oil installations by tribesmen locked in dispute with the authorities and also by local Al-Qaeda operatives.
