The foreign policy of the new Egypt: gas pipe line to Israel attacked for the 5th time

"Egyptian security officials say a militant Islamist group has blown up a terminal along the Egyptian natural gas pipeline to Israel in the northern Sinai Peninsula.  Officials say Saturday's attack on the terminal in al-Shulaq destroyed the last terminal before the line enters the sea on its way to Israel.  It is the third attack on the pipeline this month and the fifth since the 18-day uprising toppled President Hosni Mubarak in February.  While no one claimed responsibility, officials accused a militant Bedouin group for the attack.  Clashes between the group and security forces killed 5 people Friday."
