At Least 5 Killed in Pipeline Explosion in Yemen

SANA’A – At least five people were killed and 35 injured after unidentified gunmen detonated an oil export pipeline near a port in western Yemen, medical officials said on Saturday.

The officials told EFE that the explosion caused a fire in the pipeline, while those injured were taken for treatment to hospitals in the nearby city of al-Hudaydah – located on the shores of the Red Sea and 220 kilometers (137 miles) to the west of the capital city of Sana’a.

A security official said that unknown gunmen detonated the pipeline that links the oil fields of Safir in Marib, north of Sana’a, and the port of Ras Isa on the Red Sea.

The official added that large quantities of oil spilled for several hours after the blast and a huge fire erupted when dozens of workers tried to vacuum the oil and store it in barrels and fuel tanks.

In the two years of ongoing armed conflict in Yemen, there have been several attacks on oil installations in the Arab country.
