Sky News are reporting the following breaking news on their ticker.

Nothing to link to as yet:

Reuters: Senior Revolutionary Guard official assasinated.

Reuters: Reports say dozens killed or wounded in attack in Southeast Iran

That is all the information available at present.

What does this indicate? Internal strife or external influence?

One to keep an eye on i would suggest.

Only thing I can find in respect to this is a faint mention on the ap hosted on google. I am intrigued.

ML APNewsAlert (AP) – 10 minutes ago TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian state media says several top Revolutionary Guard commanders killed in suicide bombing.


The los angeles times has now reported.

I would bet most of my spare money that this was done by Israel's / US Special Forces! Who knows, even the good old British SAS may have had a go too?

This has been a long time in the making and goes on all the time in Iraq, Pakistan and others countries, we just don't get to hear about it!

Unfortunately, Iran may simply blame Israel to give them an excuse to do something back and then who knows what it will escalate into?

Definately one to watch here, thanks for the story! I saw it on Sky News first thing and immediately went to my favourite site ATS!!!

my moneys on mossad. If anymore leaders are assassinated, i'd say this is a prelude to war.

BBC News in the UK just stated that it was a suicide bomber that blew himself up and killed all the Commanders in a car (just in the right place at the right time, mmm).

Not sure what to think now, maybe the good old Beeb has been told what to say again by the Home Office (happens all the time) in case it sparks off rumours?
