PIPELINE ATTACK: Militants on Monday blew up a gas pipeline in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula that transports fuel to neighboring Israel and Jordan, a senior Egyptian security official said.
FREQUENT TARGET: The attack was the 14th on the pipeline since last year’s popular uprising that ousted Egypt’s longtime leader Hosni Mubarak.
DAMAGE LIMITED: Northern Sinai security chief Maj. Gen. Saleh al- Masri said Monday’s blast hit a section of the pipeline outside the city of el-Arish but did not cause major damage or a fire because the gas flow had been cut following a blast on the pipeline last month.
