Bomb damages Colombia’s Cano Limon crude pipeline


A bomb has damaged a section of Colombia’s Cano Limon pipeline, state-run oil company Ecopetrol said on Saturday, the twenty-sixth attack on the pipeline this year.

The attack, which took in Las Bancas in eastern Arauquita municipality, did not contaminate any water sources, the company said in a statement. It did cause a small spill which was contained in the crater left by the explosion.

The statement did not specify when the attack took place or whether the 485-mile (780-km) pipeline was pumping at the time.

The Cano Limon was kept offline for most of 2018 because of more than 80 bombings.
