Egyptian pipeline to Israel bombed again
The attack occurred Monday in the coastal town of al-Arish, Egyptian officials told Ahram Online.
Six armed men in two trucks arrived at the site and planted two bombs that were detonated by remote control, the state-run Iranian television network Press TV said Tuesday.
No group claimed responsibility for the attack, Ahram Online said, noting the lack of police presence in the area since the ouster of the former Egyptian president.
Ahram Online said many Egyptians view the deal Mubarak signed with Israel some 20 years ago as unpopular and say Israel is not paying enough for the gas.
The BBC said the pipeline was repaired last week after it was shut down Feb. 5 due to a previous explosion.
CAIRO, March 6 (UPI) -- The Egyptian pipeline that supplies gas to Israel and Jordan was bombed for the 13th time since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, officials said.
