...going after a specific cable with a welder sounds like someone had a

I think I missed a step here.  Where is the reference to the welding

The photos show three scuba tanks and a float.  I don't see any mention
of welding equipment in the NYT or Guardian pieces, or in the Egyptian
Navy's statement or photos.
