Nigeria denies report of deadly rebel attacks

©

Latest update : 2008-08-30

Rebel militants in Nigeria's oil-producing Niger Delta said on Saturday that at least 30 people were killed in clashes after they carried out reprisal attacks on the army, though Nigerian authorities denied their forces had come under attack.

The main militant group in Nigeria's oil-producing Niger Delta said on Saturday it had launched a series of reprisal attacks against the army, with 29 soldiers and six of its own members killed in the fighting.
 
The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) said fighting involving fast attack boats, rocket-propelled grenades and anti-tank missiles had taken place at three separate locations in the delta, a network of mangrove creeks.
 
There was no immediate comment from the military. It was not immediately possible to verify the militants' statement.
