Britain's Press Assn. said the victims, Christopher and Jane Rodway, were in their 40s and had lived in Saudi Arabia for eight years.

Iranian leaders Tuesday lashed out at the United States and Saudi Arabia, accusing them of complicity in two explosions that disrupted the Islamic pilgrimage at Mecca, where violence in recent years has been laid to Iranian fundamentalists. The Monday night blasts "were no doubt carried out by U.S. agents to blame Iran," Speaker of Parliament Hashemi Rafsanjani declared in an address to lawmakers in Tehran.

A small supply ship struck a mine and sank Saturday just outside the Persian Gulf in an area used by the U.S. Navy to assemble its convoys of re-registered Kuwaiti tankers. Shipping sources said that one crewman was killed while four others, including the British captain of the Emirates-based ship, are missing and presumed dead. In Saudi Arabia, a massive explosion rocked a major natural gas complex operated by the Arabian American Oil Co. (Aramco) on the Persian Gulf coast.

An American physical therapist was seriously wounded Wednesday when a parcel bomb blew up in his face in Saudi Arabia. The man suffered injuries to his face, hands and left leg when he opened a parcel--which he thought contained a videotape--in his office at the Saad Medical Center in the eastern city of Khobar, said Police Chief Naser Mohammed Naser. A tape on the U.S. Embassy answering service said the man was "gravely injured" while opening a video-sized package delivered by courier.
