Suicide bomber kills at least two
A suicide car bomber attacked police headquarters in the southeastern port city of Chabahar yesterday, killing at least two people and wounding 15, state TV reported.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, though a semi-official news agency blamed a Sunni group.
State television broke into its regular broadcast to report the attack, as such assaults are rare in the Islamic Republic.
Rahmdel Bameri, a provincial official, said a suicide attacker driving a vehicle loaded with explosives drove up to the police headquarters.
He said police officers blocked the vehicle and started firing at the driver, who then detonated his explosives.
State TV said two police officers were killed, lowering an initially reported death toll of three without explanation.
