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

State TV also showed footage of smoke rising over the city.

The Tasnim news agency said there were reports that women and children were among the injured.

A number of Iranian media have reported a vehicle explosion in the largest port city in Sistan-and-Balochistan province, Chabahar.

He was referring to the capture, trial and subsequent execution in June 2010 of Abdolmalek Rigi, the leader of militant group Jundallah who had waged a deadly insurgency in Sistan-Balochistan.

An Iranian ethnic Arab separatist Sunni militant group and Islamic State both claimed responsibility for that attack.

Sistan-Baluchistan province, where the bombing hit, has always been a flashpoint, with Pakistan-based Baluchi separatists and jihadists carrying out cross-border attacks. A year ago, the group claimed to have blown up an oil pipeline in Iran's southern Khuzestan province.

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.

IRGC Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour, who is also at the scene of the terror attack, said the attack was carried out in a blind fashion and had no outcome for the terrorists.

"Foreign-backed terrorists kill & wound innocents in Chabahar".

"In 2010, our security services intercepted & captured extremists en route from UAE". The perpetrators behind this dastardly attack should be brought to justice expeditiously.

Chabahar is a free trade zone and the site of an Indian-backed port complex which is being developed as part of a new transportation corridor for land-locked Afghanistan.

"We express our condolences to the government and the people of Iran and the families of the victims of this attack", the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal, in a tweet message had strongly condemned the terrorism in Iran's port city of Chahbahar.

India is developing the Chabahar port along with Iran and Afghanistan.
