Europe investigates 'attacks' on Russian gas pipelines

Europe is investigating major leaks in two Russian pipelines that spewed gas into the Baltic Sea today as Sweden launched a preliminary probe into possible sabotage to infrastructure at the centre of an energy standoff.
 
It remained far from clear who might be behind any foul play, if proven, on the Nord Stream pipelines that Russia and European partners spent billions of dollars building.
 
Russia, which slashed gas deliveries to Europe after the West imposed sanctions over Moscow's invasion of Ukraine, also said sabotage was a possibility and that the leaks undermined the continent's energy security.
