Mexico Rebels Claim Oil Attacks

A little known leftist rebel group in Mexico says it carried out a series of recent attacks on oil pipelines. The Popular Revolutionary Army EPR)said it had attacked oil installations of the state-owned oil company, Pemex. The EPR, which has been inactive for several years, said it acted to press the government to release two of the group's jailed members. No one was injured in the blasts, one on Tuesday and three last week, but oil supplies were disrupted. Mexico's government has launched investigations.
