Local officials disclosed that today Al-Qaeda militants blew up Yemen’s only pipeline for exporting gas. This is yet another blow to the decrepit but vital infrastructure of this war-torn country which has been contending with 20 months of fighting.
The officials added that the explosion occurred in a remote desert area at al-Oqlah in the Shabwa province, located in Yemen’s south. The explosion cuts off delivery between Marib province, the center of gas production, and Balhaf gas export terminal on the Arabian Sea.
