Wall Street reports that Militants will attack Trans-Sahara pipe if built

Nigerian Militants MEND (Movement for the emancipation of the Niger Delta) have reiterated that foreign oil companies should leave the Niger Delta of Nigeria.

MEND warned in an email that companies still operating in the Delta "namely Agip, Total, Shell and and Exxon Mobil (XOM) to leave while there is still time because within the next 72 hours" it may launch new attacks.

The MEND spokesman in the email also "warns the investors to the Trans-Saharan Gas Pipeline project that unless the Niger Delta root issue have been addressed and resolved, and money put into the project will go down the drain."

"We will ensure that it faces the same fate other pipelines are facing today"
