Iran vows revenge on 'Mercenaries' behind suicide attack

President Hassan Rouhani has vowed revenge against what he termed the "mercenary group" behind a suicide bombing which killed 27 people in Southeastern Iran and accused the us and Israel of supporting terrorism.

The official Irna news agency quoted the Iranian President as saying "we will certainly make this mercenary group pay for the blood of our martyrs.

He said the main root of terrorism in the region is America and Zionists, and some oil-producing countries in the region also financially support the terrorists.

Rouhani was speaking at Tehran's Mehrabad airport before leaving for the Russian resort of Sochi for a summit with his Russian and Turkish counterparts on the future of war-battered Syria.
