Iran's president continues to believe that Britain had a hand in the bombings that killed six people on the weekend, state television reported Monday. The British Embassy has denied the charge and condemned the blasts. Thousands of people took part Monday in the funeral in Ahvaz, Khuzestan province, of the six people who were killed when bombs exploded Saturday in a shopping center in the southwestern town. Some mourners accused Britain of instigating the blasts, which wounded at least 102 people. On Sunday, Iranian Interior Minister Mostafa Pourmohammadi said he believed the Ahvaz explosions were a continuation of previous explosions which, he claimed, were guided from abroad. In June, four bombs in Ahvaz killed at least eight people. Iran blamed them on Iranian Arab extremists with ties to foreign governments, such as Britain. Ahvaz is close to the border with southern Iraq, where 8,500 British soldiers are based as part of the US-led military coalition. The government denied the reports.
