Reuters: An explosion shook a gas pipeline between Iran and Turkey overnight near the Iranian town of Bazargan, but it was not clear if there were any casualties, Turkish media reports said on Friday. ISTANBUL, Sept 29 (Reuters) – An explosion shook a gas pipeline between Iran and Turkey overnight near the Iranian town of Bazargan, but it was not clear if there were any casualties, Turkish media reports said on Friday.

The explosion occurred around 10 p.m. (1900 GMT) near a Turkish border crossing into Iran and the flames from the resulting fire could be seen in the Turkish town of Dogubayazit, the NTV/MSNBC Web site reported.

State-run Anatolian news agency quoted local official Rauf Ulusoy as saying the explosion was about 1 km (0.6 miles) away from the border crossing on the Iranian side.

An explosion rocked the pipeline on the Turkish side in Agri province last month and authorities blamed it on sabotage by militants from the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).
