Tehran condemns explosions in Iraqi holy sites

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, March 2, IRNA -- Iran`s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid- Reza
Asefi on Tuesday condemned explosions in Iraqi city of Karbala and at 
the holy Shrine of Hazrat Moussa Kazem, the 7th Imam of prophet 
Mohammad`s (PBUH) infallible household in Kazemein on Tuesday, calling
the incidents as "brutal." 
Asefi questioned, "How can one take a terrorist move and kill the 
innocent and defenseless people, who mourned with love in their 
sanctities in a spiritual and holy place?" 
Definitely, he said, those committing such crimes are not the 
least humane. 
Unfortunately, he added, continued presence of occupiers too has 
not yet provided a guarantee for security of the Iraqi people and 
they should admit responsibility for the incident. 
He stressed that the Iraqi Governing Council should be more wise 
and prudent and be watchful of the events. 
Concurrent explosions ripped through Iraqi cities of Karbala and 
Baghdad on Tuesday, leaving hundreds of people either killed or 
injured. 
Informed sources say there are a number of Iranians among the 
victims. 
The deadly blasts come on the day of `Ashura` the 10th day of 
the lunar month of Moharram, marking the martyrdom anniversary of 
Hazrat Hossein Ibn Ali (AS), the third Imam of Prophet Mohammad`s 
(PBUH) infallible household.
