Natural-gas supplies from Egypt to Jordan will resume by the end of the week, following an explosion at a pipeline in the Sinai peninsula that halted the flow, the Cairo-based newspaper al-Ahram reported, citing Egyptian Oil Minister Abdalla Ghorab.

The region’s governor blamed terrorists for the July 4 blast, which also cut supplies to Israel.
