Egypt is still repairing a major natural gas pipeline which was damaged in an apparent attack on Monday in north Sinai, local sources said on Wednesday.

A group of technicians are working to fix the damaged pipeline, workers told Xinhua.

It will take several days to complete the work, Egypt's MENA news agency said on Wednesday.

The pipeline was bombed in the wee hours of Monday at a village in the northern Sinai Peninsula, some 80 km from El-Arish, a major gas-exporting hub in Egypt. This was the third attack on gas pipelines in the area since February.

Investigations showed the latest blast was caused by a remote- controlled detonating device. Local officials have said such acts meant to endanger security and stability in the region.
