Suicide bomber hits Mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini – Video

Armed men launched simultaneous attacks in Iran’s capital on Wednesday morning, killing a guard at the parliament building and wounding several people in the Mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini in southern Tehran, state media reported.

State broadcaster IRIB and the Fars news agency said one armed man was inside the mausoleum while at least eight people were wounded in the attack on Iran’s parliament building.

“A person entered Iranian parliament today and started shooting at the guards. He shot one of the guards in the leg and ran away,” the two semi-official Iranian news agencies, Fars and Mehr reported on their telegram feeds.

The identity and the motivation of the assailant was still unclear.
