Iran Offers Sympathy to Indonesia over Deadly Blast

Iranian foreign ministry spokesman has expressed regret over the recent explosion incident in Indonesia which killed and wounded dozens of people.

In a statement on Friday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi sympathized with the Indonesian nation and government and the bereaved families of the blast’s victims.

Two explosions tore through a fireworks factory on the outskirts of Indonesia’s capital on Thursday, killing at least 47 people and injuring dozens.

It was one of Indonesia’s worst industrial disasters and is likely to cast a new spotlight on lax safety standards in the Southeast Asian country, where rules are often ignored or weakly enforced.

Workers had no time to escape from the plant in Tangerang, an industrial and manufacturing hub to the west of Jakarta, after the explosions that one neighbor described as a “roar” that could be heard miles away.
