Iran blames Sunni group for weekend bombing

Tehran threatens to retaliate for attack that killed 42


Iran has threatened retaliation for a bomb blast that killed at least 42 people in southeastern Iran, including members of the Revolutionary Guards, an elite military unit that is charged with the defence of Iran’s Islamic Revolution. Iran blames Jundallah, a Sunni insurgent group based in the Balochistan regions of both Iran and Pakistan, for the attack. Tehran alleges links between Jundallah and British, American, and Pakistan intelligence services. All three countries have issued statements condemning the bombing.
