At least two injured in Iran's Aftab refinery incident, no deaths, state media says

(Reuters) - At least two people were injured in an incident during a maintenance operation at the Aftab oil refinery in Iran's Bandar Abbas, Iranian state media outlets reported on Thursday, citing the operating company.

Earlier, Iranian state news agency IRNA said several people had been killed and injured due to an accident there but cautioned there had been no official statement.

Several state media outlets later described it as a "partial incident that happened during a maintenance operation", without giving details of what that entailed, and said there were at least two injured, with no mention of any dead.

The facility did not sustain any major damage and the injured have been deemed as being in a stable condition after being taken to hospital, semi-official Fars News Agency said.
