According to earlier reports, at about 10:30 local time four gunmen burst into the Iranian parliament’s building and opened fire at security guards. At least eight were injured and one security guard was killed. Parliament members were not hurt.
A similar attack was mounted by unidentified terrorists on Wednesday at the Khomeini Mausoleum 40 kilometers south of Tehran. At least one militant armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle got into the mausoleum and opened erratic fire. After spending all cartridges he threw the weapon on the ground and blew himself up.
