Más de 100 muertos en explosiones de bombas cerca de la tumba de un general iraní

January 3, 2024 - Más de 100 personas murieron por las explosiones de dos bombas
cerca de la tumba del general iraní Qassem Soleimani en el cuarto aniversario de su asesinato por Estados Unidos.

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.
