UNITED NATIONS: The UN Security Council on Tuesday condemned a suicide attack in Iran at the weekend targeting top commanders of the elite Revolutionary Guards.
"The members of the Security Council condemned in the strongest terms the deadly terrorist attack that occurred in the border city of Pishin in Iran on 18 October 2009, causing at least 57 deaths and 150 injuries," said Le Luong Minh, ambassador for Vietnam, which holds the rotating presidency of the council this month.
Iranian officials have blamed Sunday's attack on Sunni militant rebel leader Abdolmalek Rigi, whose Jundallah (Soldiers of God) group has for years been waging war against Iran's Shiite rulers.
Iran turned up the heat on Pakistan on Tuesday, saying the Jundallah rebels are based on its territory.
