Mine gas leak kills 20 workers in China

AL-ARISH, Egypt (UPI) -- Assailants blew up an Egyptian pipeline that delivers natural gas to Israel and Jordan for the seventh time this year, security officials said. Officials immediately shut down the pipes halting the gas flow, Israel Radio said, noting attacks on the pipeline began after the ouster of former President Hosni Mubarak. The first of two explosions occurred late Wednesday, some 25 miles west of al-Arish in the northern Sinai, security officials told The Egyptian Gazette. The second occurred at a nearby pumping station, the newspaper said. The Egyptian news agency MENA said gunmen in two cars were seen heading toward the pipeline before the first explosion occurred. No one was injured but emergency crews deployed to the site battled for hours until flames were quelled, the paper said. The last attack on the pipeline occurred Sept. 27 when one person was injured, the paper said.
