Nov. 10 - A gas pipeline that runs from Egypt to Israel explodes into flames. Julie Noce reports.
The northern Sinai desert was ablaze early Thursday morning... The cause, an explosion in a natural gas pipeline that carries fuel between Egypt, Israel and Jordan. Sources say improvised explosive devices were put under the pipeline and were detonated from a distance. A message in the sand, apparently left by the assailants read: "We will not allow gas exports to Israel". The pipeline has been a target for attacks by anonymous saboteurs since the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak in February. Egypt and Israel have signed a 20-year natural gas deal that is largely unpopular with the Egyptian public. This is the sixth pipeline explosion incident since Mubarak was overthrown.
