At least three dead in bomb attack in Iran's Chabahar

At least three dead in bomb attack in Iran's Chabahar

It said India condemned the "despicable terror" attack.

A number of Iranian media have reported a vehicle explosion in the largest port city in Sistan-and-Balochistan province, Chabahar.

A suicide bomber killed at least two people and wounded many more outside police headquarters in the port city of Chabahar in restive southeastern Iran on Thursday, according to a revised official toll.

He was referring to the capture, trial and subsequent execution in June 2010 of Abdolmalek Rigi, the leader of militant group Jundallah who had waged a deadly insurgency in Sistan-Balochistan.

Pakpur also said several hours after the explosion that calm and security had returned to the city of Chabahar.

Chabahar lies some 100 kilometres (60 miles) west of the Pakistan border and is home to a large Balochi community which straddles the two countries.

India has said it is ready to invest up to $500m in the development of the port that is key to its ambitions to chart a route to landlocked Central Asian countries and Afghanistan, bypassing Pakistan.

A ‘Smoking Saw’ Links Saudi Prince to Khashoggi’s Murder, Senator Says
Bernie Sanders' (I-Vt.) resolution to end USA military support for the Saudi kingdom's assault on Yemen. Bob Corker (R-Tennessee), who now chairs the Foreign Relations committee, said after the briefing .

The perpetrators of such crimes will soon be identified and dealt with, he added.

The attack comes as Iran's economy reels in the wake of the United States re-imposing sanctions lifted by Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers. "There can be no justification for any act of terror", the ministry said.

The state news agency IRNA said some 24 people had been wounded.

Chabahar lies in Sistan-Baluchistan province which has always been a flashpoint, with Pakistan-based Baluchi separatists and Sunni Muslim extremists carrying out cross-border attacks targeting the Shiite authorities.

An Iranian ethnic Arab separatist Sunni militant group and Islamic State both claimed responsibility for that attack. Mark my words: "Iran WILL bring terrorists & their masters to justice".

The US, the Israeli regime and "the terrorist governments in the region that support them" feel desperate and angry over the "shameful defeat" they have suffered in their attempts to strip the Iranian nation of their independence and freedom, he said.
