'Critics' blow up Egyptian gas pipeline to Israel

Sometimes, the boilerplate rhetoric Reuters teaches its correspondents to employ in their stories doesn't quite fit.

For the twelfth time since the fall of the Mubarak regime in Egypt, the pipeline bringing Egyptian gas to Israel has been bombed.  Reuters isn't certain exactly who committed the sabotage but does tell us:
Egypt's 20-year gas deal with Israel, signed in the Mubarak era, is unpopular with some Egyptians, with critics accusing Israel of not paying enough for the gas.
Too funny.
