Iran oil spill in the Karkheh River

Concerns are mounting over an oil spill in the Karkeh river, which runs through traditional Ahwazi Arab lands in southwest Iran.

According to the Tehran daily newspaper Etenmad, the chairman of the Expediency Discernment Council Mohsen Rezaie reported that 6,000 barrels of crude have spilled into the river.

Iranian Student News Agency (ISNA) quoted Rezaie in a seminar on the diversion of the Karoon River to other provinces as saying that the spillage was due to negligence. The Karkeh is Khuzestan's second largest river.
