Radio New Zealand: Oil company attacks continue in Nigeria

Posted at 8:47am on 30 Jan 2006
Armed men stormed the headquarters of a South Korean oil services company in Nigeria's delta region and stole 40 million naira ($US307,000) in the latest attack on foreign firms.
There were no casualties.
The raid came five days after nine men were killed during a suspected armed robbery at the delta headquarters of an Italian oil company, Agip.
Rebels abducted four foreign oil workers 18 days ago and have crippled a tenth of Nigeria's production in a six-week campaign of violence.
The movement's campaign has forced Shell to withdraw 500 employees and cut its output by 221,000 barrels a day – or nearly a tenth of the output from the world's eighth largest exporter.
