India Condemns Terror Attack In Iran's Chabahar

People and security forces inspect the site of a terrorist blast in Chabahar Sistan-and Baluchestan Province southeastern Iran

The authorities did not identify who was behind the attack. "The suicide attacker set off the explosion after stopping at police headquarters in Chabahar". He said police officers blocked the vehicle and started firing at the driver, who then detonated the explosives. State television said two police officers were killed, lowering an initially reported death toll of three without explanation. "Three people were killed and some others were injured", Chabahar's acting governor Rahmdel Bameria told state TV.

The terrorist behind the wheel was seeking to force his way into the police post, but failed to do so as local security forces quickly intervened.

Jaish al-Adl (Army of Justice), a Sunni militant group that has carried out several attacks on Iranian security forces, mainly in Sistan-Baluchestan, claimed responsibility for an attack that killed 10 border guards near Pakistan in 2017.

The Indian foreign ministry strongly condemned the "despicable terrorist attack".

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

Trump Favors Kim Jong-un Visit to Seoul
North Korea was angered by Washington's refusal to ease sanctions and warned it could resume its nuclear programme. The statement said that both Xi and Trump agreed that "great progress has been made with respect to North Korea ".

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.

Citing Afghanistan's economy, the United States last approved a sanctions exemption for Chabahar when it re-imposed a second round of bans against Iran months after its withdrawal from a 2015 multilateral deal with Iran, which is officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). While Iran still complies with the accord, US President Donald Trump withdrew America over the deal in part due to Tehran's ballistic missile programme, its "malign behavior" in the Mideast and its support of militant groups like Hezbollah. A year ago the group claimed responsibilty for a blast at an oil pipeline in Iran's southern Khuzestan province. In September, gunmen dressed as soldiers attacked a military parade in Ahvaz, killing and injuring dozens.

Last year, in the first deadly assault claimed by Islamic State in Tehran, 18 people were killed at the parliament and mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, founder of the Islamic Republic.

Tehran accuses its key regional rival Saudi Arabia and the U.S. of funding most of these groups, a charge Riyadh and Washington deny.
