At least 29 people died and 70 others were wounded in an attack at a military parade in the Iranian city of Ahvaz this Saturday.

The victims were both military personnel and civilians, including a journalist, who was watching the parade. People reported that security forces gunned down three of the attackers during clashes and arrested one.

The separatist group the Patriotic Arab Democratic Movement claimed responsibility for the attack. It is an organisation which ‘foreign antagonists’ support, including Saudi Arabia, as reported by the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency.
