A deadly car bomb has exploded near a police post in Iran’s southeastern port city of Chabahar, local officials say.
“Terrorists attacked the police post in Chabahar with an explosives-laden vehicle,” the governor of Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province, Rahmdel Bamari, told the media.
The media also cited informed sources as saying that sporadic shooting followed the blast.
Four people have so far been confirmed to have lost their lives, according to the governor. A number of civilians have also been wounded in the terror blast, he added.
The terrorists, however, failed to reach their target as security forces quickly responded to the situation, he added.
Bamari further said the situation in the city is back to normal, while operational forces are monitoring the situation.
