Suicide Bomber Attacks Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s Shrine in Iran

TEHRAN: Two people were killed in a suicide bombing on Saturday at the shrine of Iran’s revolutionary leader, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, state television said. Iran’s English-language Press TV said eight people were also wounded in the bombing, which was likely to inflame anger among Iranians who revere the founder of the Islamic Republic. Press TV later said the attacker also died, without saying whether it had counted the bomber in the two dead. The semi-official Fars news agency said the bombing took place at the northern wing of the shrine. Its report was confirmed by a senior police official. Elsewhere in Tehran, Iranian riot police used teargas to disperse demonstrators protesting against a disputed presidential election, a witness said. Press TV said police also used water canon against demonstrators at Tehran’s Enghelab square
