Iran holds mass funerals for victims of military parade attack

Attack aftermath Iran president says US wants to cause insecurity

The attack was then claimed by another Ahvazi group, the Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahwaz, and the Islamic State group also claimed involvement.

The video tweeted and later deleted by the semi-official Fars news agency comes as Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed Riyadh and Abu Dhabi for the attack in the city of Ahvaz on Saturday, which killed at least 25 people and wounded over 60.

"As you can see now, all of the people, whether they're Lor, Arab, Shushtari or Dezfuli, are all here today and all say death to the terrorists", he told AFP.

Thousands of people packed the streets of Ahvaz to mourn the victims of Saturday's assault. "It is Americans who instigate them and provide them with necessary means to commit these crimes", Rouhani said before leaving for the UN General Assembly in NY. But that remark came a week after Trump and Rouhani traded threats, and Iran's leadership replied by saying the time for talks was before, not after, Trump withdrew the US from the Iran nuclear deal.

He said: "America wants to cause chaos and unrest in our country so that it can return to this country, but these are unreal fantasies and they will never achieve their goals".

Speaking at the funeral, Mr Alavi said intelligence ministry agents and other security personnel would catch all of those connected to the attack, adding that a majority were already in custody. Iranian leaders blamed the USA and Israel and threatened retaliation. "The thing he's got to do is look in the mirror".

Haley was asked about comments made on Saturday night after the attack by President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

Under Khamenei's orders, Iran now limits its ballistic missiles to a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,240 miles), which gives Tehran the range to strike Israel, Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia and the UAE, as well as regional American military bases.

Mattis said it was clear that Iran still didn't know what had happened.

A number of other individuals and groups have backed Ramos, including the International Tennis Federation. Mouratoglou admitted he was coaching Williams, but said she didn't look at him.

Haley was refuting Tehran's earlier assertions that the U.S. or its Gulf allies should be held accountable for enabling the attack, when she told CNN's 'State of the Union, ' that Rouhani "needs to look at his own base to figure out where that's coming from".

Rouhani engineered Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers that ushered in a cautious detente with Washington before tensions flared anew with Trump's decision in May to pull out of the accord and reimpose sanctions on Tehran.

"Foreign sponsors and supporters of this terrorist act have also been identified".

Iran's intelligence ministry said on Tuesday that investigators had found last week's deadly attack on a military parade in the mainly ethnic-Arab southwestern city of Ahvaz was mounted by "militant separatists".

The Revolutionary Guard has accused Saudi Arabia of supporting the attack.

Monjazi was in the wheelchair watching the parade when the gunshots erupted and was unable to find shelter from the hail of bullets.

Tasnim news agency quoted Salami as saying the "horrific crime" exposed the dark side of an alliance that the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel had created to counter Iranian influence in the region.

"We believe that Saturday's terrorist attack in Iran could prove to be the weekend's more consequential event as it will likely exacerbate the already risky Middle East antagonisms".
