There is breaking news that a powerful blast has occured in Iran. The U.S. media has yet to pick up on it which is a bit odd. I wonder why. Anyways, witnesses reported seeing a missile being fired from an unidentified plane. This could turn out to be serious if it's true.


Powerful blast in Iran
By Siavosh Ghazi in Tehran
February 17, 2005


A POWERFUL blast occurred near Iran's Gulf port of Daylam today and witnesses reported seeing a missile being fired from an unidentified plane, local television reported.
The blast came at a time of high tensions between the US and Iran, which is under intense international pressure over its nuclear activities.

Local officials have been dispatched to the site to identify the cause of the explosion in an uninhabited area in the south of the country, according to Arab-language television Al-Alam.

A government source told the television the explosion could have been the result of a fuel tank falling from an Iranian plane, contradicting reports that it was a missile.

Daylam is about 150km from Bushehr, where a controversial nuclear plant is being built with Russian help.

They've been reporting it since early this morning, before the markets even opened.

There are already several very large threads on this.
