Khatami Says Blasts WIll Not Impact on Iran's Election
President Mohammad Khatami said today a series of deadly bombings in Iran's south-western city of Ahvaz and the capital Tehran on Sunday will have no impact on the country's presidential election this week. Khatami harshly condemned the bombings as "blind, violent acts" aimed at discouraging people from taking part in Friday's election.
Officials said six suspects were arrested on Monday in connection with the bombings that killed at least nine people.
No details have yet been disclosed about the identity of the arrested suspects or the groups to which they may belong.
Meanwhile, there have been at least two small explosions in the south-eastern city of Zahedan late on Monday and early today. Two people were reported slightly injured.
