Über 100 Tote nach Bombenexplosion nahe Grab von Quassem Soleimani

January 3, 2024 - Mndestens 103 Tote und Dutzende Verwundete nach Bombenexplosion nahe Grab von General Qassem Soleimani in Kerman am vierten Jahrestag seiner Ermordung durch US

State broadcaster Irib said dozens more people were wounded when the blasts hit a procession near the Saheb al-Zaman mosque in the southern city of Kerman.

It was not clear who was behind the explosions and there were no immediate claims from any groups.

But Arab separatists, Islamic State (IS) and other Sunni jihadist groups have said they have carried out deadly attacks on security forces and Shia shrines in the country in recent years.

Soleimani was seen as the most powerful figure in Iran after the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, before he was killed in a U.S. drone strike in neighbouring Iraq in 2020, the BBC said.
