Terrorist attack on Iranian military parade: Death toll rises
*TEHRAN - Aleast 10 people were killed and over 20 people, including a child and a woman, were injured in a terrorist attack on a military parade in the south-western Iranian city of Ahvaz on Saturday, state television reported.*
Iran was holding a number of parades in cities including the capital Tehran and the port of Bandar Abbas on the Gulf to mark the start of the country’s 1980-88 war with Iraq.
Shooting broke out several minutes into the parade and lasted for ten minutes, which featured troops from the Iranian Army’s 92nd armoured division, Iran’s ISNA link news agency reported.
“Shooting began by several gunmen from behind the stand during the parade. There are several killed and injured,” a correspondent told state television.
The agency’s Twitter account has released a set of photos showing the aftermath of the attack.
