Bahrain blames Iran for pipeline explosion:
Bahrain says an explosion that caused a fire at its main oil pipeline Friday was caused by “terrorist” sabotage, linking the unprecedented attack to its arch-foe Iran. Bahraini authorities said they had brought the fire under control. “Terrorist acts witnessed by the country in the recent period are carried out through direct contacts and instructions from Iran,” the statement quoted Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid bin Abdullah al-Khalifa as saying. Iran denies any role in the gulf island kingdom’s unrest.
