TEHRAN (AFP) — One person was wounded as the result of two bomb blasts in the western city of Sanandaj in the Iranian Kurdistan province, the official IRNA news agency reported Saturday, quoting a provincial official.

“Fortunately as the result of two blast no one was seriously wounded or fatalities … but due to shattering of the some window panes … only a passer-by was sent to hospital suffering from injury in his arm,” the police commander of the Iranian Kurdistan police, Ebrahim Qaed, was quoted by IRNA.

“The first blast occurred around 10:00 p.m. (1730 GMT) the first blast occurred in Azadi square in Sanandaj and 10 minutes later the second blast occurred close to an ATM of a Keshavarzi Bank branch nearby,” he said, adding the search for apprehension of “those behind the terrorist act has begun”.

Earlier, IRNA said: “A bomb in a garbage can next to an ATM machine in a Keshavarzi Bank branch in Sanandaj blew up,” adding: “A person was wounded as the result of the blast but his general condition is satisfactory and he is currently in a hospital in Sanandaj.”

The second blast left the ATM machine damaged and a number of shop windows close by were shattered, the IRNA report added.

Last November, authorities in Iranian Kurdistan said they defused two bombs hidden in the city of Sanandaj.

Western Iran, home to a significant Kurdish population, has been the scene of deadly clashes for years between security forces and Kurdish rebel groups operating from bases in neighbouring Iraq.

In September, a deadly bombing hit a military parade in the western city of Mahabad, killing 12 people and wounding at least 81.
