Latest update : 2008-04-13

A blast in a mosque in Iran on Saturday was not an attack and was probably caused by explosives left behind from an exhibition, state media reported. At least 10 people were killed and more than 160 wounded in the blast in the city of Shiraz.

TEHRAN, April 13 (Reuters) - A blast in a mosque in southern
Iran that killed at least 10 people on Saturday was not an
attack and was probably caused by negligence, a police official
was quoted as saying on Sunday by a state television station.
 

"The blast may have been caused by explosives left behind
from an earlier exhibition commemorating the (1980-88) Iran-Iraq
war," said the English-language Press TV.
 

Iranian media said at least 10 people were killed in the
blast in the southern city of Shiraz and more than 160 were
wounded.
