Militants in southeast Iran attack a police station and kill 2 security forces, state TV says


TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s state TV says four militants have attacked a police station with grenades in the country’s southeast. The attack took place Saturday morning in Zahedan, a city in Iran’s Sistan and Baluchistan province, near the border with Pakistan, triggering a shootout. Two security forces were killed. Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard said the four militants were killed. The report quoted the province’s deputy governor as saying the militants were trying to gain access to the police station and were equipped with grenades. The state-run IRNA news agency on its Telegram channel said a Sunni separatist group affiliated with al-Qaida and known as Jeish al-Adl, or Army of Justice, claimed responsibility for the attack.
