Zarif vows punishing terrorists, their sponsors

Tehran, Dec 6, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message referred to recent terror attack in southern Iran and promised punishing terrorists.

“Foreign-backed terrorists kill & wound innocents in Chabahar. As we've made clear in the past, such crimes won’t go unpunished: In 2010, our security services intercepted & captured extremists en route from UAE. Mark my words: Iran WILL bring terrorists & their masters to justice,” Zarif tweeted on Thursday.

The source, who wanted not to be named, said driver of a Toyota Van, laden with explosives, tried to run into the police headquarters in Chabahar, but police was brave and vigilant enough to take timely action and prevent him to do so.

The suicide bomber then blew himself up at around 09:55 hours local time on Thursday and as a result two police forces were martyred and the suicide attacker was killed, according to the official.
