Bahrain blames Iran for pipeline fire 'terror attack'

Bahraini emergency workers block the road leading to the site of a fire at an oil pipeline near to the village of Buri south of Manama

Bahrain has accused Iranian terrorists of blowing up a strategic oil pipeline and causing a massive inferno near a hospital and market.

"It is an act of sabotage, a serious terrorist act aimed at harming the interests of the nation and endangering the population", the interior ministry said on Twitter.

Meanwhile, an official source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated the Kingdom's strong condemnation of the blast that led to a fire in the oil pipeline near Buri area in Bahrain.

Iran has denied allegations it was behind a militant attack on a pipeline outside Bahrain's capital. However, it potentially opens a new front in the low-level insurgency plaguing Bahrain since its 2011 Arab Spring protests.

Bahraini authorities have launched an investigation into the incident.

The disputes are expected to get the spotlight at the summit, along with the North Korean nuclear threat and terrorism. Duterte said earlier in the week that he planned to ask China to make clear its intentions in the South China Sea.


Bahrain relies on the Abu Safa field, which it shares with neighbouring Saudi Arabia, for much of its oil, pumped in via a 230 000-barrel-per-day pipeline.

"The attempt to bomb the Saudi-Bahraini oil pipeline is a unsafe Iranian escalation that aims to scare citizens and hurt the global oil industry", Sheikh Khalid posted on Twitter on Sunday.

Bahrain, home to the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet, faces occasional attacks from local Shiite militant groups as the kingdom ruled by the Sunni Al Khalifa family continues a crackdown on all dissent, imprisoning or forcing politicians and activists into exile.

It also suspended pumping oil to Bahrain after the attack on the crude oil pipeline. It has faced increasing financial pressure in recent years.
