LAGOS, June 21 (Reuters) – Nigeria’s main militant group said on Sunday its fighters had attacked two Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) oil pipelines in Rivers state in the Niger Delta.

“At about 0230 (GMT), the hurricane pounded the Shell major pipeline located at Adamakiri before moving on to another major Shell ppeline in Kula at 0300,” the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) said in a statement.

There was no immediate independent confirmation.
