Suspected militants blow up Sinai pipeline

May 24, 2014 5:17 P.M. (Updated: May 24, 2014 5:17 P.M.)
CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Suspected militants blew up a gas pipeline in the northern Sinai Peninsula late Friday, Egyptian army sources said.

The sources told Ma'an that an explosive devise was blown up underneath a pipeline in the village of al-Tawil south of el-Arish.

The pipeline supplies natural gas to an industrial zone in central Sinai, the sources said.

It was the second time in a week that the pipeline was hit with explosives.

Military officials suspected that the attack was revenge for the army's killing of Shadi al-Munei, a leader in the Ansar Beit al-Maqdis militant group.
