Iran Three killed in Chabahar suicide bombing says state media

A suicide vehicle bomber has attacked a police headquarters in the Iranian port city of Chabahar, killing at least three people and wounding several others, according to state TV.

A number of Iranian media have reported a auto explosion in the largest port city in Sistan-and-Balochistan province, Chabahar.

"This morning a bomb inside a auto exploded near a police station in Chabahar".

The governor of Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province, Rahmdel Bamari, told the IRNA news agency that four people had been killed and many others injured.

"Police stopped the explosive-laden auto and started firing at the driver. who then set off the explosion near the police headquarters in Chabahar", said Bameri.

It reported there were sounds of explosions and shooting in the city on Thursday.

An Iranian ethnic Arab separatist Sunni militant group and Islamic State both claimed responsibility for that attack.

In an online communique, the Sunni jihadist group Ansar al-Furqan claimed responsibility for the attack, according to the Washington-based SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors online extremist activity.

"Iran will bring terrorists and their masters to justice", he wrote on Twitter.

State TV also showed footage of smoke rising over the city.

Chabahar lies some 100 kilometres (60 miles) west of the Pakistan border and is home to a large Balochi community which straddles the two countries. In September, gunmen dressed as soldiers attacked a military parade in Ahvaz, killing and injuring dozens.

Terror attacks in Shiite Iran are rare, but militants have stepped up action in recent months.

The television said several people were also wounded in the terrorist attack.
