3 killed, several injured in terrorist attack in Iran’s Chabahar port

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

Images posted online showed thick smoke rising from the sky in the area where the incident took place.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif claimed that those behind the attack were backed by foreign countries and would be brought to justice.

An official told TV that "the terrorist who carried out the attack was killed".

Iranian authorities said Rigi who headed the militant group Jundollah was captured on a flight from Dubai to Kyrgyzstan.

TV also reported shooting in the area, which is located in the mainly Sunni province of Sistan-Baluchestan that has always been plagued by unrest from both drug smuggling gangs and separatist militants.

"The terrorists exploded a auto carrying explosives at the gate of the [police] headquarters", Bameri was quoted as saying by the official government news agency IRNA.

Ansar al-Furqan, a Sunni jihadi group, clamed credit for the attack.

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

Chabahar, near Iran's border with Pakistan on the Sea of Oman, is home to a newly built port and is an economic free zone.

It hosts the operation of a joint port project between Iran and India.

Chabahar is also the site of a port complex, which is being developed in cooperation with India as part of a new transportation corridor for landlocked Afghanistan.

Chabahar city is around 100 km from Iran's border with Pakistan.

In June a year ago, IS militants attacked parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, killing at least 18 people and wounding more than 50.

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

Such acts of violence will also "boost the Islamic Republic of Iran's resolve to fight terrorism", said Jahangiri, calling for all-out efforts to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
