Saboteurs blow up pipelines in Iran

Saboteurs who have blown up 12 pipelines in Iran's oil-producing Khuzestan Province in recent days will strike again during the coming week, Oil Minister Ali Akbar Moinfar said Sunday. Mr. Moinfar told a news conference the explosions have not affected production or exports so far. But he gave the first official confirmatio of a recent decline in Iran's oil output.

The Kayhan newspaper reported Sunday that bombs exploded an oil pipeline near Shush and a natural-gas pipe in Ahwaz late Saturday. Ten oil pipelines and one gas line were blown up by a bomb near Ahwaz Thursday and three more separate explosions on oil pipelines were reported Saturday.
