Media in Iran report “a terrorist attack” in Shahcheragh shrine in Shiraz, capital of Fars Province that reportedly killed and injured several people Wednesday evening.
Tasnim and Fars news agencies affiliated with the Revolutionary Guard said that 10-13 people were killed and about 15 wounded, but the later government media raised the death toll to 15.
According to these reports three or four people opened fire inside the shrine and two were arrested.
Tasnim quoted a security source who said those responsible were "Takfiri, Wahhabi elements," referring to Sunni extremists.
Nationwide protests are raging in Iran on Wednesday to mark the 40th day of Mahsa Amini’s death, who was arrested by the ‘morality police’ in mid-September and died in police custody.
The information from government-controlled websites cannot be independently verified and the possibility of a false-flag operation to blame the protesters and “enemies” of the Islamic Republic exists.
