An explosion in a crowded mosque in Shiraz on Saturday evening killed at least 12 people and left about 200 wounded.
Ordnance inside the mosque, used for an exhibition about the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, had caused the blast, the official told the Mehr News Agency, dismissing as political propaganda some reports that the incident was the result of a terrorist strike.
“Investigations confirm that these substances were stored for a long time which caused a chemical reaction and with the explosion of one of them others also blew up,” he explained.
