Egypt gas pipeline to Israel in Sinai Blown Up - 28th Nov 2011

Attack comes hours before Egyptian parliamentary elections set to begin; marks ninth such attack on pipeline this year; security forces and fire trucks race to scene west of El-Arish.

CAIRO - Saboteurs blew up Egypt's gas pipeline to Jordan and Israel on Monday, witnesses and security sources said, a few hours before the country holds its first free election since president Hosni Mubarak was toppled in February.

The explosion was set off west of El-Arish in Sinai, witnesses said. There was a second consecutive blast, about 100 metres away, sources said.
