    At Least 183 Die in Iranian Fuel Wagon Blast

    Runaway train wagons laden with a lethal cocktail of fuel and fertilizers blew up in northeast Iran on Wednesday, killing at least 183 people -- a toll officials expected to rise. State television showed flames licking from mangled, charred train wagons, with thick black smoke billowing into the sky. Grinning youths scampered around the wreckage. "Some 183 bodies have been recovered and others still may be buried under the rubble of a nearby village," said Hassan Hadiani, a spokesman from the governor's office in Nishapur, 13 miles from the blast. He said 260 injured had been taken to hospital and all blazes had now been extinguished in the stricken area close to the city of Nishapur, hometown of medieval poet Omar Khayyam. The state news agency IRNA said the 51 runaway wagons, filled with petrol, fertilizer and sulfur products had been set rolling by earth tremors in the saffron-growing province of Khorasan bordering Turkmenistan and Afghanistan.

        Indeed another tragedy, and possibly linked to an earthquake?

        May Allah give patience to the bereaved and bless the souls of everyone who died.

              The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.
