Gas pipeline blown up in Egypt’s Sinai

TEHRAN (FNA)- Militants blew up a gas pipeline Tuesday in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula for the second time since the ouster of President Mohammad Mursi this month, a security source said.

The bomb, planted at the pipeline that exports gas to Jordan, was detonated remotely, Voice of Russia reported.

Military helicopters chased a group of masked militants believed to be behind the attack, but they managed to escape, the source said.
