انفجار بمب در مراسم رژه نیروهای مسلح در مهاباد؛ دهها تن شهید و زخمی / Ten killed in Iran in bomb attack on military parade


BBC News – Ten people have been killed and at least 20 wounded in a bomb attack on a military parade in north-western Iran.

No soldiers died, but most of the casualties in the town of Mahabad were said to be women and children.

A provincial governor blamed “counter-revolutionaries” for the attack, which came on the 30th anniversary of the start of the Iran-Iraq war.

Militants have long been active in the area, which is home to a sizeable Kurdish population.

There have been reports of Kurdish political activists being arrested, tried and executed in recent months.

Kurdish separatists based in northern Iraq have also waged a long guerrilla campaign inside Turkey and have regularly clashed with Iranian security forces.


“The bomb exploded 50 metres from the parade stand and killed 10 people including the wives of two senior military commanders of Mahabad,” Mr Jalalzadeh told Iran’s semi-official Mehr news agency.

Four of the injured were in a critical condition, he added.

The parade was one of a number being held across Iran as the country marked 30 years since the beginning of the Iran-Iraq war, a bitter conflict that ran from 1980 to 1988.

More than a million people died during the war.
