  • Rare suicide car bombing kills at least three people in Iran

At least three people died and 24 others were injured in a suicide vehicle bomb attack on the police headquarters in Iran's southeast on Thursday, state media reported, adding that the perpetrator was killed. 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.

"The terrorists tried to enter Chabahar police headquarters but they were prevented by the guards and they detonated the auto bomb", Marashi said without elaborating on how many assailants took part.

Rahmdel Bameri, a provincial official, said a suicide attacker driving a vehicle loaded with explosives drove up to the police headquarters.

The report went on to say that shooting could also be heard in the city.

India Thursday strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Chabahar in Iran.

There was no immediate claim of responsiblity for the attack.

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.

Chabahar, near Iran's border with Pakistan on the Sea of Oman, is home to a new port recently built and is an economic free zone for the country.

Images posted online showed thick smoke rising from the sky in the area where the incident took place. In September, gunmen dressed as soldiers attacked a military parade in Ahvaz, killing and injuring dozens.

Mohammad Pakpur, the commander of the ground forces of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) said the attack had failed.

The television said several people were also wounded in the terrorist attack.
