BOGOTA - Colombia's second-longest oil pipeline was bombed over the weekend, most likely by leftist rebels, a source at state-run Ecopetrol said on Thursday.

It was at least the fourth attack since late February on the 780-kilometer Cano Limon-Covenas line, which has a capacity of 220,000 barrels per day, but usually pumps about 80,000.

"Right now repairs are being prepared for the pipeline," the source said.

The attack happened on July 9, the source added.
