Nigeria militants attack pipeline, cut output

Nigerian militants attacked an oil supply pipeline near Chevron's Escravos oilfields late on Thursday, prompting the shutdown of some production, a military general said on Saturday.

"An oil pipeline was attacked at 11:30 p.m. Thursday night," said Brigadier-General Wuyep Rintip. "For production to have stopped, this shows the damage was serious."
