Suicide Bomber Kills Six Revolutionary Guard Commanders, Iran Blames US And UK

The government has blamed a few people but seemed to have settled on the United States and England. Israel did not come up, I suspect, because Iran does not want to say that Israel is capable of a successful attack right now.

"The headquarters of the armed forces blamed the bombing on "terrorists" backed by "the Great Satan America and its ally Britain", the semi-official Fars News Agency reported.

"Not in the distant future we (Iran) will take revenge."

It said the militant group Jundallah (Soldiers of God) had claimed responsibility for the attack, the deadliest in Iran in recent years.
