Iran parliament attacked

Suicide bombers and gunmen attack Iran's parliament and the Mausoleum of Ayatollah Khomeini in Tehran. Gunmen armed with Kalashnikovs entered the parliament on Wednesday morning. Images from the scene showed a major security operation as forces surrounded the building. Iranian authorities denied that there had been a hostage situation inside the parliament building. Reports said the gunmen had entered parliament via a public entrance, dressed as women. Security forces surrounded the parliament, and TV footage showed people, including children, escaping from windows.

Iranian media later reported that four attackers inside the parliament building had been killed by security forces. At the mausoleum in southern Tehran, which is dedicated to the Islamic Republic's founder Ayatollah Khomeini, attackers began their assault by opening fire. The governor of Tehran said one attacker there had detonated a suicide vest and another had been killed by security forces, state broadcaster Irib reports.
