LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) -- Nigeria's main militant group says its fighters bombed another oil pipeline in the restive southern oil region.
The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta says it destroyed the pipeline run by a unit of Royal Dutch Shell PLC with high explosives.
Shell officials could not immediately be reached for comment Thursday.
If confirmed, the attack would mark the sixth straight day of stepped-up violence in the southern regions of Africa's oil giant.
