Tehran, Iran, Sep. 30 – In an unexpected turn of events, the Chief Prosecutor of Iran’s south-western province of Khuzestan accused Canada and the United Kingdom on Friday of supporting and training individuals that carried out a spate of bombings in the provincial capital of Ahwaz in June.

Seyyed Khalil Akbar al-Sadat, speaking at a gathering of the chief prosecutors of the country’s 30 provinces, said, “The Khuzestan bombers were in contact with Britain and Canada and were being backed by them”.

“The primary individuals responsible for the bombings were Iranian and were supported by foreign forces. They had received training in Britain and Canada and were in contact with these countries via the internet and mail”, the chief prosecutor announced.

On June 12, seven people were killed and another 75 injured as a result of four bomb blasts in the oil-rich city of Ahwaz.

Iranian-Canadian ties have been severely strained over the past two years after the refusal by Iranian officials to properly investigate the death of Iranian-Canadian photojournalist Zahra Kazemi. Tehran’s Chief Prosecutor has been implicated in her death.

Tehran’s relations with London have also taken a turn for the worse after Britain drafted a resolution demanding the International Atomic Energy Agency refer Iran’s nuclear non-compliance to the Security Council.
