TEHRAN, Iran — Two explosions have struck outside a mosque in southeastern Iran, killing at least 20 people, Iran's state news agency says.
The IRNA news agency quotes Jalal Sayyah, the deputy governor of the Sistan-Baluchistan province, as saying the blasts caused casualties among worshippers at the main mosque in the provincial capital of Zahedan. Sayyah did not say how many were killed or wounded.
The Sistan-Baluchistan province shares a border with Pakistan and is home the Jundallah insurgency, a Sunni group that says it is fighting for the right of the Baluch minority in Iran.
Iran hanged the group's leader in June after he was found guilty carrying out attacks against civilians, armed robbery, and engaging in a misinformation campaign against Iran.

CRAP! Here we go - no matter what actually happened, (terrorists, internal or otherwise, false flag, one kook or a foreign country, etc.) it's going to be blamed in Isreal (maybe they did it, maybe not) and now the freakin' war is REALLY on. This is not good, folks... this is not good at all...

Got potassium iodide?

My guess is the separatist Sunni group Jundallah(Soldiers of God) had something to do with this. They've had a problem with Sunni rebels for quite some time.

On a side note this is another reason not to believe that Osama is hiding out in Iran. Sunni's of his ilk and that of these Soldiers of God are one in the same when it comes to Sunni Muslim terrorism against Shi'ite Muslims.

Was it a kamikaze run? If not, may be a false flag by the you-know-whos to evoke agression from Iran towards the west. America's intel agencies are just pissing themselves waiting to conduct mass ops in Iran.

"Two explosions in the front of Zahedan's Grand Mosque have left more than 20 martyrs and over 100 injured," Fariborz Rashedi, the head of Sistan-Baluchestan's emergency unit told IRNA.
The first explosion occurred at 9:20 p.m. local time (1650 GMT) in front of the city's Grand Mosque, and was followed by a second blast within minutes, IRNA said.
Jalal Sayyah, a police official, said emergency forces have arrived at the scene of the incident, adding that an investigation into the incident was underway.

Yep. No matter who did it, the blame will come to Israel and the US. Either we orchestrated it, or we supplied the explosives, or our tyrannical policies created the envirnoment to make it possible.


It can't possibly be the problem with their internal politics and overbearing shariah law?

Anyhow, I can see this causing escalation rather quickly. Especially if the explosives are found to be high grade or high powered. From the initial reports it sounds like pretty good explosives.

Premature to blame the guilty who have admitted their guilt?
OOOOOK.
Not to mention we already know the US has been backing the MEK a known terrorist orginization.
The US has admitted they have been in there steady pound for years
premature indeed.
and we all know who tells the US what to do.



"Islamic Terrorists" supported by Uncle Sam: Bush Administration "Black Ops" directed against Iran, Lebanon and Syria

The Bush administration has admitted that covert actions of an aggressive nature were applied against Iran and Syria. The stated objective was to wreck the countries' economies and currency systems. The infamous Iran-Syria Policy and Operations Group (ISOG) created in early 2006, integrated by officials from the White House, the State Department, the CIA and the Treasury Department, had a mandate to destabilize Syria and Iran, and bring about "Regime Change" :

"The committee, the Iran-Syria Policy and Operations Group [ISOG], met weekly throughout much of 2006 to coordinate actions such as curtailing Iran's access to credit and banking institutions, organizing the sale of military equipment to Iran's neighbors and supporting forces that oppose the two regimes." (Boston Globe, 25 May 2007)

ISOG had also been providing undercover assistance to Iranian opposition groups and dissidents. The group's propaganda ploy consisted in feeding disinformation into the news chain and "building international outrage toward Iran". (Boston Globe 2, January 2007)

Iran mosque hit by bomb blastsAt least 20 killed and more than 100 wounded in two suicide bombings outside a mosque in south-eastern Iran



At least 20 people have been killed and more than 100 wounded in two suicide bombings outside a mosque in south-eastern Iran.
Members of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards were among those who died when the blast struck outside the main mosque in Zahedan, the capital of Sistan-Baluchistan province, IRNA state news agency reported.
"The first explosion took place behind a checkpoint, and a number of Revolutionary Guard members were killed and injured because of it," Ali Abdollahi, the deputy interior minister, told the Fars news agency.

So it was suicide bombings seems like Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards were the target the article gose on to say.



No group has yet claimed of responsibility for the bombings. But Hoseinali Shahriari, Zahedan's MP, told Fars he believed Sunni insurgent group Jundollah were behind the attacks.
