India strongly condemns Chabahar terror attack: MEA

Suicide bombing kills 3 in southeastern Iran

In 2010, two suicide bombers killed at least 28 people, including some of the elite Revolutionary Guards, at a Shi'ite mosque in southeast Iran, an attack Iranian leaders said was backed by the United States.

Videos shared on Twitter said to be taken from the scene shows smoke rising into the sky with the sound of sirens heard in the background. The perpetrators behind this dastardly attack should be brought to justice expeditiously.

"This was a blind terrorist attack", Pakpur told the semiofficial Tasnim news agency.

Iranian authorities said Rigi who headed the militant group Jundollah was captured on a flight from Dubai to Kyrgyzstan.

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.

According to security officials, the explosion was caused by a auto bomb going off in front of the Police Headquarters in Chabahar, Sistan and Baluchestan province.

Later reports indicate that Ansar Al-Furqan terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Although rare, Iran has been targeted in recent years by militant attacks.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal, in a tweet message had strongly condemned the terrorism in Iran's port city of Chahbahar.

Sistan-and-Baluchestan - which borders Pakistan - has suffered several terror attacks targeting both civilians and security forces over the past years.

Iran also says that militant groups are sheltering across the border in Pakistan and has threatened to attack their bases if Islamabad does not confront them.

That attack was claimed by the Sunni separatist group Jundullah (or Soldiers of God), which has claimed responsibility for bombings in the past. "There can be no justification for any act of terror", an MEA statement said.
