Yemen's Main Oil Export Pipeline Blown up

Tribesmen blew up Yemen's main oil export pipeline and it will likely be closed for a week, a local official said. Damage sustained during a previous attack on June 27 was fixed within hours, but repairs required after Sunday's explosion will take longer.

"The tribesmen blew up the pipeline," the local official said. "It will take up to a week to fully repair it." Yemen, which relies on crude exports to bolster foreign currency reserves and finance up to 70 percent of government spending, has seen frequent bombings of the key pipeline in central Maarib province since early 2011.

Yemen's stability is a priority for the United States and its Gulf Arab allies because of its strategic position next to key shipping lanes and because it is home to one of al Qaeda's most active wings.
