Iran Refutes Allegations of Involvement in Bahrain Oil Pipeline Blast

The official source reiterated Saudi Arabia's condemnation of the acts of sabotage and terror being perpetrated by Iran in order to destabilize the region and its security and the safety of its citizens and expatriates.

Bahrain said the pipeline that exploded overnight was attacked by militants and alleged that Iran was in communication and guiding those responsible for the explosion and other attacks.

The explosion damaged cars and nearby buildings, forcing firefighters to evacuate those close to the flames in Buri, just outside of the capital, Manama.

Oklahoma State CB intercepts end zone pass without looking at the ball
With time running out, Cyclones backup quarterback Zeb Noland drove down to the Oklahoma State 4-yard line looking to tie. Oklahoma State senior quarterback Mason Rudolph completed 25-of-31 passes for 376 yards and three touchdowns.


Bahrain shares the affected Abu Safa oil field with neighbour Saudi Arabia, with around 230,000 barrels pumped through the pipeline every day, according to UAE newspaper The National.

No group has claimed the attack.

Bahrain, a Shiite-majority kingdom ruled by a Sunni dynasty, has seen sporadic violence since the repression in 2011 of a protest movement demanding a constitutional monarchy and an elected prime minister.

Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Dr. Abdullateef Al-Zayani also strongly condemned the intentional blast that occurred on Friday near Buri Island in Bahrain that targeted an oil pipeline. Authorities later extinguished the blaze on the pipeline belonging to the state-run Bahrain Petroleum Co.

"Terrorist acts witnessed by the country in the recent period are carried out through direct contacts and instructions from Iran", a statement quoted Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid bin Abdullah al-Khalifa as saying.
