Roadside bomb in southeastern Iran explodes prematurely, kills militant

A "terror plot" targeting a police car in southeast Iran with a roadside bomb failed on Wednesday, killing one of two militants, a provincial public prosecutor said according to the semi-official Tasnim news agency, SİA reports.

The second militant fled the scene and authorities have not yet identified the group to which they belonged. But the militants were known to have crossed Iran's eastern borders to carry out an attack on police forces, the authorities said. Iran's Sistan and Baluchistan province is prone to violence, especially from Jaish al Adl, which is a Sunni militant group belonging to the Baluch minority that straddles both Iran and Pakistan.
