India strongly condemns Chabahar terror attack: MEA

Rare suicide car bombing kills at least three people in Iran Iran: Deadly attack hits police post in Chabahar

A suicide auto bombing followed by an armed assault killed at least two people and wounded many more outside police headquarters in the port city of Chabahar in restive southeastern Iran on Thursday.

Chabahar city governor Rahmdel Bameri said earlier that four people were killed and many more wounded when the bomber blew up a auto, but later revised the death toll to two.

"The terrorists tried to enter Chabahar police headquarters but they were prevented by the guards and they detonated the vehicle bomb", Marashi said without elaborating on how many assailants took part.

Mohammad Hadi Marashi, deputy governor for security affairs, told state TV that two police officers were killed in the attack.

There was no immediate claim of responsiblity for the attack.

Suicide bombings are rare in Iran, but Sunni militant groups have carried out several attacks on Iranian security forces in the Sistan-Baluchestan province in recent years.

Images posted online showed thick smoke rising from the sky in the area where the incident took place.

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

On June 7, 2017 another co-ordinated Islamic State group attack on parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution, killed at least 18 people and wounded more than 50.

Arab separatists and the militant Islamic State (IS) group both claimed the assault.

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.

It said India condemned the "despicable terror" attack.

Chabahar, on Iran's south-eastern coast near the border with Pakistan, is home to a recently built port and is an "economic free zone".
