Egypt's gas pipeline, which supplies gas to Israel, has been blown up for the tenth time this year.

Saboteurs attacked the pipeline near the El-Sabeel Station in El Arish at dawn on Sunday.

The last attack took place on 28 November, only hours before the first phase of the parliamentary elections were set to begin.

The pipeline carries gas through the Sinai and on to Jordan and Israel.
