TEHRAN: A suicide bomber blew himself up at the Tehran mausoleum of Iranian revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini on Saturday, killing himself and wounding two pilgrims, the official news agency of Iran reported.
Earlier, another news agency said the attack took place at the entrance to the shrine where devotees leave their footwear before entering the main mausoleum.
"Minutes ago, a terrorist detonated his explosive vest in the Imam Khomeini shrine. The blast caused damage in one section of the shrine," Iran's deputy police chief for operations, Hossein Sajedinia, was quoted as saying by the news agency.
He said the bomber was killed and one pilgrim wounded.
