Tehran, Iran, Apr. 21 – The prosecutor in the Department of Justice in the southern town of Shadegan was shot and seriously wounded, a semi-official daily reported on Saturday.

The official, identified as Najafabadi, was shot in his car on his way from work by masked gunmen who made their escape on a motorbike, the hard-line daily Kayhan wrote.

Najafabadi sustained injuries in the face and foot, according to the report.

Shadegan is situated in the Arab-dominated province of Khuzestan. Ahwaz, the capital of oil-rich province, has been the scene of unremitting anti-government protests since early 2005.
