TEHRAN (Reuters) – An explosion outside a mosque in Iran’s southeastern city of Chabahr killed dozens of people on Wednesday, the official IRNA news agency reported.

It said the blast could have been a suicide bomb attack but gave no details.

“The blast happened in front of a mosque in the city of Chabahr killing dozens and wounding many of those praying on the holy Shi’ite day of Ashur,” IRNA quoted Mohammad Yaqub Jadgal, a lawmaker, as saying.

IRNA added: “A local official confirmed the explosion in Chabahr on Wednesday. Some reports suggested that the blast was the result of a suicide bomb attack.”

Iran has seen a string of explosions in past months, including a blast at a military training base in October that killed and wounded several servicemen.

Several armed groups hostile to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s rule are active in Iran, including Kurdish separatists in the northwest, Baluch militants in the southeast and some Arabs in the southwest.
