A Swedish investigation into ruptures of the subsea Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines has detected residue of explosives and concluded that “grievous sabotage” caused the breakage.

The pipeline, which crosses the Baltic Sea to Germany from Russia, has been the focus of a probe by authorities in a number of countries after leaks were discovered Swedish and Danish exclusive economic areas at the end of September.
