Iran defuses two bombs in Kurdistan province: report

AFP: Iranian authorities have defused two bombs hidden in the western city of Sanandaj in Kurdistan province, Press TV quoted a provincial official on Tuesday as saying.

TEHRAN, November 16, 2010 (AFP) – Iranian authorities have defused two bombs hidden in the western city of Sanandaj in Kurdistan province, Press TV quoted a provincial official on Tuesday as saying.

“The bombs, both of which had been stashed inside a pressure cooker, were discovered last night,” Iraj Hassanzadeh, a provincial deputy, was quoted by the website of the Iranian English-language channel as saying.

“According to witnesses, both pressure cookers which contained the bombs had been placed inside an egg box on a sidewalk of a densely populated neighbourhood,” the report said, without providing further details.

Western Iran, home to a significant Kurdish population, has been the scene of deadly clashes for years between security forces and Kurdish rebel groups operating from bases in neighbouring Iraq.

In September, a deadly bombing hit a military parade in the western city of Mahabad, killing 12 people and wounding at least 81.
