At least four killed in Iran gas pipeline explosion: ISNA


It least four people were killed and five others injured on Thursday in a gas pipeline explosion in southwest Iran, the Iranian Students News Agency ISNA reported.

“Gas leakage from a pipeline that linked the gas network from Mahshahr city to Ahvaz city, caused the blast,” ISNA quoted local official Kiamars Hajizadeh as saying.

“At least four people, including one child and a woman, were killed in the blast and five people were wounded.”
