Iran blamed the West and Israel on Saturday for twin suicide bombings which killed 40 people, despite condemnation of the attack by the European Union, the United Nations and the United States.

“This blind terrorist act was carried out by the mercenaries of the world arrogance (the Western powers),” state television’s website quoted Deputy Interior Minister Ali Abdollahi as saying.

Sunni militant group Jundallah said it carried out bombings which targeted members of the Revolutionary Guards at a Shia mosque in Zahedan.
