Militants blew up another crude pipeline in Nigeria's Niger Delta, a youth and protest leader said Thursday.Protesters also continued to block the entrance to a Chevron oil depot in the restive southern region for a third day.The Niger Delta region has been hit by a wave of militant attacks on oil and gas pipelines, reducing Nigeria's crude output by 700,000 barrels a day, according to state oil company NNPC.The militants, which are splintered in many groups, say they want a greater share of Nigeria's oil wealth -- which accounts for around 70 percent of national income -- to be passed on to communities in the impoverished region and for areas blighted by oil spills to be cleaned up.
