Egypt con­demns ter­ror at­tack on oil pipe­line in Bahrain

No one was in­jured in the ex­plo­sion and no mil­i­tant group claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the blast

The Daily News Egypt - - News -

Egypt con­demned on Satur­day, “the ter­ror at­tack on an oil pipe­line near the Bahraini cap­i­tal city Al-Manama,” ac­cord­ing to a state­ment by the Egyp­tian Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs.

No one was in­jured in the ex­plo­sion, and no mil­i­tant group im­me­di­ately claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the blast.

Ac­cord­ing to the state­ment, Egypt stands with the Bahraini gov­ern­ment and peo­ple in the fight against ter­ror­ism, which aims to desta­bilise, and harm the se­cu­rity of, the king­dom.

Last month, a Bahraini po­lice­man was killed and eight oth­ers were in­jured in an­other ter­ror at­tack which tar­geted a po­lice car­rier in Al-Manama.

In a state­ment fol­low­ing the at­tack, the Bahraini Min­is­ter of In­te­rior said that, “the last ter­ror at­tacks which have oc­curred in Bahrain re­cently have been im­ple­mented in di­rect con­tact with, and un­der in­struc­tion from, Iran.”

The Ira­nian Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs de­nied and re­jected the Bahraini ac­cu­sa­tions in a state­ment de­scrib­ing the ac­cu­sa­tions as “lies and boy­ish ac­cu­sa­tions”.

The Bahraini gov­ern­ment reg­u­larly ac­cuses Shi­ite groups af­fil­i­ated with Iran of car­ry­ing out ter­ror at­tacks against po­lice­men, ac­cu­sa­tions that Iran de­nies.

Emer­gency and res­cue work­ers are seen block­ing the road lead­ing to the fire at an oil pipe­line in Manama
