Egypt gas pipeline attacked, shut down

The pipeline sends natural gas to Israel and Jordan. WSJ says it was probably done by Bedouin with RPGs, who could certainly attack again anytime, especially considering that authorities are a teensy bit preoccupied with other matters now.

At first the government pretended it was caused by a leak but now blames “subversive elements.”

Israel gets 25% of their natural gas from this pipeline and is no doubt getting seriously twitchy about the reliability of this supply, what with this explosion and the ongoing revolution.
