SANAA - The United Arab Emirates has pledged 3 million barrels of oil to Yemen, which faces a fuel crisis due to attacks on a pipeline during widespread political unrest, a Yemeni deputy minister said on Saturday.

Deputy Information Minister Abdo al-Janadi, speaking to reporters, did not give details about the delivery of the oil from the UAE, the world's third-largest crude exporter.

Saudi Arabia last month donated 3 million barrels of crude to Yemen, its impoverished neighbor, and several deliveries have already been made to a refinery in the southern port city of Aden to help ease fuel shortages.

A blast on the small, non-OPEC producer's main pipeline in March, for which angry tribesmen were suspected, has stopped the flow of crude to the refinery.
