Egypt: Assailants Bomb Gas Line in Sinai for Fourth Time Since Mursi's Ouster

Cairo — Unidentified gunmen bombed a natural gas line south of Arish City in the Sinai Peninsula on Tuesday morning, security sources said.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing smoke a few meters high as a result of the blast.

This is the fourth time that assailants have bombed the gas line in Sinai since the ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi in July.

The line was bombed 19 times after Hosni Mubarak stepped down in 2011.
