20 people were killed and about 100 were injured in bomb attacks on a mosque in Iran. The Iranian interior ministry said that the suicide attack happened on Thursday in the city of Zahedan (Sistan-Baluchestan Province) in southeastern Iran. The ministry blamed the Sunni group Jundollah for the attack.

"Two explosions in the front of Zahedan's Grand Mosque have left more than 20 martyrs and over 100 injured," Fariborz Rashedi, the head of Sistan-Baluchestan's emergency unit told IRNA.
