Yemeni tribesmen shot down an army helicopter
killing eight soldiers, on Tuesday, during a clash over repairs to a
main oil pipeline blown up by saboteurs, a tribal chief said.The armed tribesmen clashed with troops in Wadi Abida,
in the lawless eastern province of Marib, as gunmen prevented
maintenance teams from fixing the export pipeline blown up last week,
the chief told Agence France Presse.Among the eight killed on the helicopter was Brigadier
General Hussein al-Mashaba, head of Yemen's force tasked with protecting
oil installations, the source said.He said the gunmen shot down the chopper with a rocket.Yemeni tribesmen blew up the pipeline linking eastern
oilfields to the Red Sea coast, halting the flow of oil, state media
reported on Sunday.An official said at the time it was the "second act of sabotage by the same group in 10 days."
