IS claims attack on Egypt gas pipeline
Cairo: The Islamic State group said on Monday it blew up a gas pipeline in Egypt’s restive Sinai Peninsula, claiming it was connected to Israel. Security sources earlier said the pipeline hit was a domestic one that connects to a power station in El-Arish, powering homes and factories in central Sinai. No casualties were reported. Masked gunmen drove a four-wheel drive before detonating explosives in the attack, carried out around 80 kilometres west of the provincial capital El-Arish, the sources told AFP. – AFP
