Colombian rebels have attacked an oil field in the north-west of the country, the state-owned company Ecopetrol says.

It said the attack on the Tibu field near the Venezuelan border, had put the lives of workers and residents at risk. However no-one was injured.

The Colombian military has not specified which group carried out the attack.

The two main left-wing rebel groups in Colombia - the Farc and the ELN - are known to operate in the area.

In recent weeks power stations, oil fields, pipelines and roads have been damaged in actions attributed to the guerrillas.
