Syrian state television described the blast as a "terrorist" attack, saying that a group of "saboteurs" was behind the explosion. It was the second incident involving an oil pipeline in a month, and the second time this week that authorities accuse "saboteurs" of striking installations. (AP Photo/SANA) EDITORIAL USE ONLY
