An explosion at a steel production complex in central Iran killed seven workers including foreigners, the semi-official Fars news agency quoted a senior local official in Yazd province as saying on Monday.
"The explosion at the Ghadir Steel plant led to the deaths of seven people and the serious injuries of 12 others who have been transferred to hospital for treatment," said Yazd's
governor Azizulah Seifi.

Gee, another explosion, I wonder what caused this....Does anyone actually buy there isn't a covert war going on? Not very covert is it?
Of course, the absence of an imminent aerial attack on Iran by Israel or the U.S. does not mean we're in a period of peace.
Rather, what we are seeing is a sinister covert war that involves kidnappings and assassinations of scientists, the possible use of computer viruses to destroy information networks, and mysterious explosions at Iranian nuclear sites, all of which seem to be escalating.
It's an odd, unacknowledged war within Iran where no one claims responsibility but no one bothers to deny responsibility very convincingly either.
Last year, two leading nuclear physicists were killed and the head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization was wounded by car-bomb attacks inside Iran, attacks Teheran blamed on Israeli and U.S. operatives.
Months later, Iran's nuclear program was sabotaged and put back at least a year by the Stuxnet computer virus.
The virus, widely believed to have been created by a joint Israeli-U.S. intelligence operation, made secret adjustments to centrifuges at Iran's uranium enrichment site.
Then, on Nov. 12 this year, an enormous explosion virtually obliterated a top secret base near Teheran that was being used for developing long-range missiles.
The blast killed the head of Iran's missile program and 17 others, including key experts in the field, and was blamed on an accident, although there are strong suspicions in intelligence circles that sabotage was again involved.
Just two weeks later, another large explosion damaged the key uranium enrichment plant at Isfahan. Again there was no clear explanation for the blast and no one took credit. But two giant blasts to Israel's great benefit does seem an odd coincidence.

/ the americans did this to sabotage the iranian infrastructure.
I don't have any official or scientific proof to back up these claims, but i'm sure that's what happened
A local member of parliament, Ali Akbar Oliaw, said there appeared to have been unexploded munitions in with the steel.
"Among the scrap metal was ammunition which had not worked, and this caused the blast," he was quoted as saying.

Who wants to bet they were making high grade steel for missiles or some parts of their nuclear program there?
Or it's just an ``accident``... we will probably now within days.
