CAIRO – 13 February 2019: A suicide bombing that targeted a bus carrying Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) killed at least 20 personnel and wounded 20 others in southeastern Sistan and Baluchistan province on Wednesday.

The IRNA news agency reported the toll in the bombing Wednesday in Sistan and Baluchistan province.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which came on the day of a U.S.-led conference in Warsaw that included discussions on what America describes as Iran's malign influence across the Middle East.

The province, which lies on a major opium trafficking route, has seen occasional clashes between Iranian forces and Baluch separatists, as well as drug traffickers.
