Gunmen bomb gas pipeline in Egypt's Sinai.

NORTH SINAI, Egypt, July 7 - A group of militants bombed early Sunday morning a pipeline in Egypt's North Sinai that provides natural gas to Jordan, security sources told.

"The gunmen bombed part of the pipeline in Lehfin area of southern Arish in North Sinai and another part of the pipeline north of Arish International Airport," a security source said.

Meanwhile, another local official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the bombing sent raging blaze to at least 15 meters high and ten kilometers around.

No casualties were reported so far, and local security forces have hurried to the scene to monitor the situation and firefighters managed to extinguish the fire, said the official.

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

So far there is no group claiming responsibility.

Also, unidentified militants early Sunday opened fire at four checkpoints in Sheikh Zuweid city in North Sinai. The Armed Forces and policemen exchanged fire with the gunmen, but no casualties were reported.

The attacks came after the Egyptian army ousted President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday in response to millions of protesters who demanded his removal due to his "maladministration" since he came to power a year ago. However, supporters of the Islamist- oriented president condemned the move as "a military coup" and vowed to sacrifice for Morsi's legitimacy.

On Friday, at least five soldiers were killed in North Sinai in armed attacks by extremist Islamist groups in Arish International Airport, a security camp in Rafah, a police station and two security checkpoints in Sheikh Zuwaid and other security premises.

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.
