India strongly condemns Chabahar terror attack: MEA

Images posted on Twitter purported to show thick smoke rising from the area. No militant group immediately claimed responsibility 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.

India on Thursday strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Iran's Chabahar where a suicide vehicle bombing followed by an armed assault killed at least two outside police headquarters on Thursday.

Pakistan strongly condemns terrorist auto bomb attack in Chahbahar in brotherly neighbouring Iran that has taken lives of 3 innocent people while injuring others.

A little-known Sunni jihadist group claimed responsibility for the attack, which Iran's foreign minister accused of being "foreign-backed".

Rahmdel Bameri, a provincial official, told state TV that a suicide attacker driving a vehicle loaded with explosives drove up to the police headquarters. Ansar al-Furqan is known to operate in Iran's southeastern Sistan and Baluchistan Province, which sees occasional attacks by Baluch separatists and drug traffickers.

New Blood Test Can Spot Cancer in 10 Minutes
A universal cancer test would not be precise enough to detect tumour location or size, but it enables doctors to give a yes or no answer.

Arab separatists and the Islamic State group both claimed the assault.

"Foreign-backed terrorists kill & wound innocents in Chabahar".

"As we've made clear in the past, such crimes won't go unpunished: In 2010, our security services intercepted & captured extremists en route from UAE", Zarif wrote in the tweet.

Chabahar, near Iran's border with Pakistan on the Arabian Sea, is home to a new port recently built and is an economic free zone for the country. Mark my words: "Iran WILL bring terrorists & their masters to justice".

It hosts the operation of a joint port project between Iran and India. "There can be no justification for any act of terror", the ministry said.

Chabahar Port, which is being developed with funding from India, has been described as India's "golden gateway" that will help boost trade links to land-locked Afghanistan and central Asia, while bypassing its regional rival, Pakistan.
