USWAR/Huge smoke near Iranian border

 Qasr-e Shirin, March 21, IRNA -- Huge smoke billowed from an unknown  
target about 10 km deep the Iraqi soil from this western Iranian      
border, an IRNA correspondent witnessed here Friday.                  
    Sources said the smoke came after Iraqi troops who exploded oil   
pipelines of the Kheneqin region in order to create haze and reduce   
visibility of the advancing US-led forces.
