Nigeria militants say not behind E. Guinea attack
The main militant group in Nigeria's southern Niger Delta said on Tuesday its fighters were not involved in an attack by gunmen in motor boats on nearby Equatorial Guinea's capital Malabo.

"We heard of the incident but MEND is not involved at all. The people are paranoid," the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) said in a statement to Reuters.

Equatorial Guinea's government has blamed the attack on "rebel terrorists" from the Niger Delta, where militant groups regularly launch raids on Africa's biggest oil and gas industry.
