The theory that the multiple ruptures in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines that run from Russia to Germany were part of a sabotage plot is growing. A gas leak from the Nord Stream 2 pipe was detected on Monday evening near the Danish Island of Bornholm after the pressure dropped significantly in one of the two tubes.

Danish authorities have since detected what they say are three leaks in both Nord Stream lines. The ruptures in the Nord Stream 1 pipe have been found in both the Danish and Swedish sections of the tube, while the leak in Nord Stream 2 is in the Danish section.

All the leaks are concentrated in the area around Bornholm.
