Shooting has been reported in the corridors of the Iranian parliament, local news agencies report. At least three people are said to have been injured in the incident.
The attacker opened fire at the guards, then escaped the building and is now on the run, FARS news agency reported


However, Fars cited some members of parliament who claimed that shooting continues in the building. “Clashes still continue at the parliament building,” one MP said. That has not been confirmed by other media outlets.

Oh boy things are getting very fraught indeed
Where is this going to lead I wonder?
It is also being reported that there was an attack on the Shrine to Ayatollah Khomeni too

Iran's state TV news website said four "terrorists", including a suicide bomber, have attacked the shrine of the late leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in the capital, Tehran, killing a security guard and wounding four people.
State TV said one of the attackers was killed by security guards and that a woman was arrested following Wednesday's attack.
Shia Iran has been singled out as a target by Sunni jihadists, including the Islamic State group, but has largely escaped attacks within its urban centres.


wtf...


Iranian MP Vakili tweets: "Terrorists are present and shooting but parliament session is proceeding normal and according to plan."

Well that's horrible. I hope they quickly catch the remaining 3 responsible.

I don't envy them when the Iranian authorities catch up to them. They'll probably kill themselves beforehand.

Also kudos to them for continuing the session. Terrorists can't scare the Iranian parliament into submission apparently.

[TEHRAN – Iran's parliament (Majlis) and the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini, founder of the Islamic revolution, have been targeted in simultaneous attacks



The local Tasnim news agency reported that seven people had been killed and four people were taken hostage in the attack on parliament. Citing sources on the ground and adding that the information hadn't been confirmed by security personnel, Tasnim said the hostages were being held on the upper floors of the parliament building.


Sounds pretty coordinated
Attack both at the same time, try to lure the quick response units to the mausoleum while the real aim storms parliament, shoots the place up and takes hostages.

No doubt they're trying to contact a news agency to deliver a message - the litmus test is if the Western Media allow the message to be played on TV.

What the actual F?! Between Qatar & this now, I'm putting the tinfoil on & wondering about what strings are connected to who's fingers. Way too much of a coincidence if you ask me.

You know, in some countries I could be jailed or even killed for making such a statement.

Can you guess which ones?

ISIL claiming responsibility for the attacks, no big surprise there.
