Bahrain blames Iran for pipeline ex­plo­sion:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD -

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.
