Iran refutes alleged "terrorist" attack on oil pipeline

TEHRAN, Dec 31 (KUNA) -- Iran on Sunday described reports claiming that an oil pipeline in the Islamic Republic's southwestern province of Khuzestan was hit by a "terrorist" attack as "baseless and untrue." "The news of oil facilities in Khuzestan province coming under attack is completely false," state-run Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) quoted Aghajari Oil and Gas Production Company's public relations manager as saying.
A number of media reports on Saturday indicated that an oil pipeline in Khuzestan province was the target of a "terrorist" attack. (end) mw.nam
