euronews-A suicide bomber has killed 29 people, including six senior Revolutionary Guards commanders in Iran.
State television says a Sunni rebel group has admitted carrying out the attack which left another 28 people wounded.
Analysts say a rebel group known as Jundollah, which has links to the Taliban in neighbouring Pakistan, is the likely suspect.
The attack took place at the gates of a conference hall in the city of Sarbaz in Sistan-Baluchestan province.
A suicide bomber detonated explosives strapped to his body during a gathering of tribal leaders according to the Iranian television reports.
The Revolutionary Guard is a branch of Iran’s military founded after the Iranian revolution. It is thought to number as many as 120,000 with its own small naval and air arms.
Two high-ranking commanders among the dead were the deputy head of the Guards’ ground forces and the regional commander of the Sistan-Baluchestan province.
