Suicide Bomb Kills Revolutionary Guards

After a fresh suicide bombing in Iran, at least 29 people and five commanders in the military’s Revolutionary Guard are dead, a loss the Guard is blaming in part on the U.S. and Britain. A statement from the Revolutionary Guards read, “Surely foreign elements, particularly those linked to the global arrogance”—a term the Guardian calls “regime code” for the U.S. and Britain—“were involved in this attack.” It is unclear if the blast was the work of a single suicide bomber or multiple parties, though suspicion is largely placed on Jundallah, a militant Sunni organization responsible for a number of past bombings in the region. The attack comes a day before Iran will meet for talks regarding its nuclear program.
