A photographer takes a snap-shot of hundreds of kegs at the site of an oil pipeline explosion in which at least 45 people were burned to death when fuel they were siphoning from a buried pipeline caught fire in Abagbo village, on the outskirts of Lagos, December 26, 2007. Such disasters are frequent in Nigeria, Africa's most populous country and top exporter of crude oil. Nine out of 10 Nigerians live on less than $2 per day and many are prepared to take huge risks to obtain free fuel. REUTERS/Akintunde Akinleye (NIGERIA)

A woman dries a basket of cassava beside flames from an oil flow station in Niger-Delta region of Nigeria January 18, 2006. Oil climbed towards $67 on Wednesday as Nigerian militants said they were targeting all foreign oil firms in their drive to halt flows from the world's eighth biggest crude exporter. Most of Nigeria's oil is produced in the Niger Delta where an estimated 20 million people live in poverty alongside a multibillion-dollar industry. REUTERS/George Esiri
