This is potentially a HUGE development in Europe. Why is this not breaking news across all media outlets?
"There is no doubt that these were explosions," Bjorn Lund, a seismologist at Sweden's National Seismology Centre (SNSN) told public broadcaster SVT, Reuters reports.
FROM AXIOS: Two leaks were detected in the Nord Stream 1 pipeline and one in the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. While neither pipe was operating at the time the leaks were discovered, both were filled with gas, Reuters reported.
Nord Stream AG confirmed in a statement that "the Nord Stream 1 control center registered a pressure drop on both strings of the gas pipeline," adding that an investigation is underway.
Sweden's Maritime Authority issued a warning for ships to maintain a five nautical mile distance from the sites of the leaks, which were registered near the Danish island of Bornholm.
Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said she "cannot rule out" sabotage. The country's maritime authority echoed Sweden's warning, noting that ships could lose buoyancy if they're in the vicinity of the leaks and that there remains a risk of the leaked gas igniting at the water's surface and in the air, AP reported.
