Tehran, Iran, Feb. 21 – Armed clashes took place between a group of people and agent’s of Iran’s State Security Forces in the town of Iran-Shahr, south-eastern Iran, a local security official announced.

A “local troublemaker” called Vahed was killed in the clashes, Brigadier General Mohammad Arab said. His comments were reported in Tuesday’s edition of the semi-official daily Jomhouri Islami.

General Arab said that Vahed along with three other individuals were planning to carry out a road block in the village of Kheyrabad.

Iran-Shahr is situated in the restive province of Sistan-va-Baluchistan.

At least 11 members of the Revolutionary Guards were killed and 31 others left injured last Wednesday when a bomb exploded next to their bus in the provincial capital of Zahedan.
