Two bombs exploded yesterday in front of a police station in the city of Zahedan in southeastern Iran, causing minor injuries to three police officers, local officials said.
Head of Sistan-Baluchestan police Mohammad Qanbari said the first explosion was caused by a percussion grenade, IRNA reported.
According to him, a "suspicious package" was also found on the street and exploded before being neutralized by a bomb disposal unit, injuring three police officers.
