Iran's armed forces warn of revenge over attack

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran’s armed forces accused the United States and Britain of involvement in Sunday’s attack on the elite Revolutionary Guards and warned of revenge, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported.

The headquarters of the armed forces blamed the bombing on “terrorists” backed by “the Great Satan America and its ally Britain”.

“Not in the distant future we (Iran) will take revenge ... and Baluchis will clear this region from terrorists and criminals,” Fars quoted a statement as saying, referring to the inhabitants of Sistan-Baluchestan province, where the attack took place.
