Several casualties in terror attack on military parade in Ahvaz

At least 20 people, including a child and a woman, were injured in a terrorist attack on a military parade in Iran’s southern city of Ahvaz on Saturday, the official news agency IRNA reported.

Unknown gunmen opened fire on people from behind the stand during the parade held to mark the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's invasion of Iran which led to an eight-year war in the 1980s.

"It has been reported that four or five of the elements of the terrorist incident were killed by security and law enforcement forces," IRNA said.
