Bomb explodes near Nigerian refinery

Militants say blast intended to ward off ‘Chinese oil thieves’

(CNN) — Nigerian militants claimed Saturday that they detonate a car bomb outside an oil refinery in Warri.

A Nigerian army spokesman told the French news agency AFP that the blast caused no casualties and only minimal damage.

A group calling itself the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta said the blast was a warning to companies working in Nigeria’s oil fields, especially the Chinese. Chinese President Hu Jintao signed oil deals earlier this week with Nigerian officials during a state visit.
