Is Britain waging a secret counter-jihad in Iran? From Reuters, with thanks to all who sent this in:
TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran said on Tuesday it had arrested more than 20 people in connection with deadly weekend bombings in southern Iran which the government has blamed on Britain.
Saturday’s blasts outside a shopping mall in the city of Ahvaz killed six people and wounded 100 and have prompted calls from Iran’s hardline press for Tehran to sever ties with London….
Britain denies any links to the bombings as well as a series of other attacks and unrest earlier this year in the ethnic-Arab dominated Khuzestan province which borders southern Iraq and contains the bulk of Iran’s oil reserves….
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reiterated his view that Britain was linked to the attacks.
“We have no reason to believe that Britain was not involved in the recent incident,” the ISNA students news agency quoted him as telling journalists on Tuesday.
“We are very well aware of such countries’ behavior. Terrorist acts and insecurity are among the methods used by occupying countries like the UK,” he added.
