ABUJA (Reuters) – Nigeria’s main militant group said on Thursday its fighters had attacked a Royal Dutch Shell oil pipeline in Rivers state in the Niger Delta.

“(The fighters) struck again today … at the major Shell Bille/Krakama pipeline in Rivers state,” the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) said in a statement sent by email.

“Cawthorne Channel 1, 2 and 3 flow stations feeding the Bonny export terminal have been effectively put out of service.” No independent confirmation of MEND’s statement was immediately available.
