Saudi Arabia's energy ministry said pumping to Bahrain had been suspended and the kingdom was stepping up security precautions at its own facilities after its Gulf island neighbour blamed "terrorism" linked to Iran for an oil pipeline blast.

The statement came a day after an oil pipeline near the Buri village in central Bahrain caught fire.

"It is an act of sabotage, a serious terrorist act aimed at harming the interests of the nation and endangering the population", the interior ministry said on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Saudi's National Oil Company Saudi Aramco confirmed that the suspension of oil supply to Bahrain would be effective until the end of the investigation.

Bahrain's Interior Ministry made the announcement on Saturday afternoon, alleging that Iran was in communication and guiding those responsible for the pipeline explosion and other attacks.

"The terrorist incidents that Bahrain has been witnessing recently are happening either through directs calls or guidance from Iran", he said.

Kuwait on Saturday strongly condemned the terrorist bombing of an oil pipeline in Bahrain, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) reported.

Bapco said the incident was an isolated one.

Thankfully, the fire did not result in any casualties, he added.

It also expressed its confidence that these acts will not distract the government of Bahrain and its people from pursuing development and standing against desperate attempts of destruction and violence.
