A group of persons suspected of committing a terror attack in the province of Sistan-Baluchistan province has been arrested, Iranian TV's news site "İribnews" quotes Iranian Minister of National Security Heydar Muslehi.
Muslehi didn't called their number and didn't tell anything about the arrested individuals.
Deputy police chief Ahmad Reza Radan said that police arrested 40 suspects over two bombings at a mosque in south-east Iran due to joint efforts by local residents and police. He said there were two police officers among the dead, and 10 people were wounded. Their health state is serious.
On the night of July 16, two bombs were detonated in quick succession in front of the Zahedan Grand Mosque in Sistan-Baluchestan Province. At least 27 people lost their lives and more than 270 others were injured in the incident.
According to a Dubai Al-Arabiya TV channel, the "Jundullah" group (Army of God) took responsibility for the attack, committing it in response to this group's leader Abdolmalek Rigi's death.
The pervious major blast committed by the "Jundullah" group took place in October 2009, which caused 50 peoples' death.
