March 2014, Vol. 241 No. 3

Separatist rebels from Pakistan’s resource-rich Baluchistan province last month blew up three gas pipelines, cutting supplies to the country’s most economically important province. The Times of India credited the report to Ayub Bajwa, emergency manager for Sui North Gas Pipelines Limited in Islamabad.

According to the report, Punjab is Pakistan’s most populous and wealthy province is now without gas. The damaged pipelines are large — 24, 18 and 16 inches in diameter and it was expected to take several days to carry out repairs.
