India strongly condemns Chabahar terror attack: MEA

Iran´s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says

India Thursday strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Chabahar in Iran.

Iranian officials and state media are reporting that two security guards have been killed in a suicide attack outside police headquarters in the southeastern port city of Chabahar.

Mohammad Hadi Marashi, the deputy governor in charge of security, said the assailants tried to enter the city's police headquarters but "they were prevented by the guards and they detonated the vehicle bomb".

The blast near Chabahar's police headquarters on Shahid Rigi Boulevard has been confirmed by Mohammad Hadi Marashi, the deputy security chief of the province.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

Images posted on Twitter purported to show thick smoke rising from the area.

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

At least three tornadoes were confirmed in northwest and southwest Arkansas, which largely caused property and structural damage. The National Weather Service says the actual number of tornadoes that touched down will be confirmed in the coming days.

State television broke into its regular broadcast to report the attack, as such assaults are rare in the Islamic Republic.

In September, gunmen disguised as soldiers opened fire on a military parade in Ahvaz, killing and wounding dozens.

Ansar al-Furqan, a Sunni jihadi group, clamed credit for the attack.

Arab separatists and the Islamic State group both claimed responsibility for the attack.

Tehran accuses its Sunni-led regional rival Saudi Arabia and the United States of funding most of these groups, a charge that Riyadh and Washington deny.

Chabahar is a free trade zone and the site of an Indian-backed port complex being developed as part of a new transportation corridor for landlocked Afghanistan.
