Egypt's gas supply to Jordan completely halts after pipeline blast

AMMAN, July 7- Jordan said Sunday an attack against a gas pipeline in the Egyptian city of Arish led to the complete halt of natural gas supply into the country, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

A source at Jordan's Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources said the Egyptian authorities told Jordan that assessment of the damage was underway.

A group of militants "bombed part of the pipeline in Lehfin area of southern Arish in (Egypt's) North Sinai and another part of the pipeline north of Arish International Airport," an Egyptian security source said earlier.

No casualties were reported so far, and no one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The pipeline has been attacked more than 10 times since Egypt's former President Hosni Mubarak was ousted in 2011.

Over the past three years, about 80 percent of the power generated in energy-poor Jordan,which imports some 96 percent of its energy needs annually,relied on the Egyptian gas.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
