Four People Hurt In Blasts In Iranian Cities

27 February 2006, Radio Free Europe -- Iran's official news agency, IRNA, says two small bombs exploded in the southern Iranian cities of Dezful and Abadan today, wounding four people.

The report said that in both cities the bombs were planted in the office of the local governor.

Dezful and Abadan lie in the oil-producing province of Khuzestan, which has seen ethnic tensions between Iranian authorities and the Arab minority over the past year.

The provincial capital Ahvaz, home to a large community of ethnic Arabs, has been hit by a string of bombings in recent months.

Iranian officials have accused British forces in neighboring Iraq of being behind the unrest. Britain denies the charges.
