Yemen officials hunt for oil pipeline attackers

Yemen officials are searching for the attackers on an oil pipeline in Shabwa province. The militants had placed a bomb under the pipeline in a town east of the provincial capital Ataq, reports said.

Armed groups have repeatedly attacked Yemen's oil pipelines in the past, some of them members of tribes disgruntled with the authorities in the impoverished Arabian peninsula country.
