Tehran, Iran, Feb. 28 – Iran’s Interior Minister blamed agents of foreign governments for carrying out Monday’s bomb attacks on the offices of the governors of the south-western Iranian oil cities of Abadan and Dezful in the volatile province of Khuzestan.

Radical Shiite cleric Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi was quoted on Tuesday by the official state news agency as saying, “The groups that carried out the bombings in Khuzestan were led from beyond our borders and certain countries were involved in the attacks. The intelligence service has obtained specific leads in this regard”.

He said that most of those responsible for an earlier spate of bombings in the Arab-dominated province had been arrested.

Pour-Mohammadi described those responsible for Monday’s bombings as “remnants of the previous disruptors and the agents that carried out the previous bombings”.

A string of top Iranian officials including hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have accused Britain of being behind a spate of bombings in Khuzestan since 2005.

London has repeatedly denied any involvement in the attacks.
