Pakistan-Trained Militants Carried out Iranian Bomb Attacks, Najjar Says


Iran’s Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar said the “terrorists” who carried out the bomb attacks yesterday received training in Pakistan.

“A group of terrorists who are unfortunately being trained on the other side of our eastern borders, in Pakistan, committed this terrorist act,” he said, cited by the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency.

At least 38 people were killed in two bombings outside a mosque in Iran’s southeastern city of Chabahar during the annual Shiite Muslim ceremonies of Ashura, the agency said yesterday.
