The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

A sui­cide bomber killed at least 27 mem­bers of the Is­lamic Revo­lu­tion­ary Guards Corps and wounded 13 on a bus in a restive re­gion of south­east Iran Wed­nes­day, Ira­nian me­dia re­ported. It was among the dead­li­est at­tacks in Iran in years. The Revo­lu­tion­ary Guards, an elite Ira­nian para­mil­i­tary force, quickly blamed the United States for the as­sault, which came dur­ing the week that Iran’s lead­ers have been cel­e­brat­ing the 40th an­niver­sary of the Is­lamic Rev­o­lu­tion that over­threw the U.S.-backed shah in 1979. The Revo­lu­tion­ary Guards did not ex­plain how the United States could have been in­volved in the at­tack.
