TEHRAN Feb 11 (Reuters) – Simultaneous explosions on three gas pipelines jolted the nearby holy Shi’ite city of Qom, the semi-official Mehr news agency reported on Friday.

According to Mehr the explosions occurred at 5:50 a.m. local time (0220 GMT) in the town of Salafchegan, in Iran’s central Qom province.

Qom itself was shaken by the blasts and the red glow from explosions was seen in the south western sky above the city, Mehr said.

A local official who was only identified by his family name, Bahrami, said the Red Crescent staff were present at the site, declining to elaborate more.

Mehr said the blasts had caused unease. Rumours were spreading due to what it called an inappropriate flow of information on the incidents.

However, student news agency ISNA reported there was one blast on a cross-country gas pipelines and there were no casualties, but the cause of the incident was under investigation.

ISNA quoted local officials saying that there was no halt in the gas flow in the network.
