No bombs hit the pipeline that supplies oil to world markets?

BP-Azerbaijan said on Tuesday it was unaware of an alleged Russian bombing of a pipeline in Georgia that ships BP`s oil to world markets.

"All our facilities are intact and we have no such information," a BP official told Reuters.

The head of Georgia`s Interior Ministry security service department, Shengeli Keranidze, said earlier Russia had dropped three bombs in the area through which the Baku-Supsa pipeline runs. One bomb hit the pipeline without exploding, he said.

Russia`s General Staff denied any attack on the pipeline.
