Video - Militants reportedly blow up another oil pipeline in Nigeria

More woes for Nigeria's oil industry. Militants have reportedly blown up another crude pipeline in the Niger Delta. And protesters are still blocking the entrance to a Chevron oil depot in the southern region. The Niger Delta Avengers have claimed responsibility for the bulk of the attacks on pipelines. But on Wednesday a new group emerged -- the Delta Greenland Justice Mandate. Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has come under increased pressure from militants in recent months. They're calling for the country's oil wealth to be shared more equally, to benefit communities in the Niger Delta.
