Tehran, Iran, Jan. 11 – Three explosions which rocked the restive province of Khuzestan, south-west Iran, on Thursday were due to a mine-removal operation underway, the state-run news agency Fars quoted the governor of the city of Khorramshahr as saying.

Earlier state media reported that the powerful blasts may have come from explosives planted by rebels.

In November, a percussion bomb exploded in the nearby city of Ahwaz.

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

London has repeatedly denied any involvement in the attacks.
