SANAA - Yemen's main Maarib oil pipeline has been blown up for a second time in less than a week while repairs were being carried out to fix damage from Tuesday's attack by tribesmen, a government official told Reuters on Sunday.

The Maarib pipeline used to take around 110,000 barrels a day (bpd) of light crude to the Ras Isa export terminal on the Red Sea coast until a spate of attacks in 2011.
