CAIRO: Suspected militants in Egypt's Sinai on Tuesday blew up a gas pipeline that feeds an industrial area in the restive peninsula, security officials said.
The officials said there were no injuries in blast that targeted the domestic pipeline.
Militants had forced a halt to gas supplies to Israel and Jordan by repeatedly targeting another gas pipeline through Sinai following the 2011 overthrow of strongman Hosni Mubarak.
They have escalated attacks on soldiers and policemen following the military's overthrow of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July.
The group spearheading the attacks, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, is inspired by Al-Qaeda and has claimed bombings targeting police in mainland Egypt.
