An oil pipeline in northern Colombia was bombed Tuesday for the second time in a week, reported local media.
Oil has spilled into local rivers after attacks on the Caño-Limon-Coveñas pipeline in the North of Santander department. The attackers are unknown but left-wing guerrillas are known to be active in the area, according to local media.
The most recent attack took place in the village of Miralinto, a few kilometers from where the pipeline was attacked on Thursday last week. The spilled oil is reportedly not spreading due to low water levels in the rivers.
Staff of the national oil company Ecopetrol have so far been unable to repair the damage as they are waiting for the army to secure the area.
