It was terrorism after all

In an earlier post, I reported on a claim that this past weekend's explosion in a pipeline transporting natural gas from Egypt to Jordan was caused by a leak. Now, an investigation has proven otherwise: It was a terror attack.
Egyptian Judge Abdel Nasser el-Tayeb, the chief investigator of the Feb. 5 explosion, said Monday that four masked gunmen set off explosives in the gas terminal by remote control after restraining the guards, according to testimony by the guards, The Associated Press reported.

The head of Egypt's natural gas company had said the explosion was caused by a gas leak.

Gas supply also was cut off to Jordan, according to reports.

It will take about a week for the pipeline to be repaired and for the flow of gas to be restored to Israel.
Terrorism sure seems like a much more likely cause.
