Egypt terminates Israel gas deal




By IANS/RIA Novosti,

Cairo : Egypt has terminated a long-term gas deal with Israel because of violations of contractual obligations, Egypt's daily al-Ahram reported.

The Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company's decision Sunday comes after a string of cross-border pipeline attacks in the 14 months since Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak's ouster last February. The move overshadows the peace agreement between the two countries.
