Nigerian gunmen claim attack on Shell gas plant

Nigeria's main armed group said its fighters had carried out an attack on the Utorogu gas plant operated by Royal Dutch Shell in the Niger Delta on Saturday and warned of more strikes against the industry.

"It is to send a message to the oil companies that all the pipelines they have repaired in the western Delta will soon be in need of repairs again," the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) said in an emailed statement.
