Swift action against Iran bombers: Ahmadinejad

world Updated: Oct 18, 2009 21:43 IST

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ordered Iranian authorities to swiftly track down those who planned Sunday's suicide attack in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan.

"I am ordering the relevant officials to identify quickly the elements behind this terrorist crime and hand them over to the judiciary," the official IRNA news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.

"I assure the Iranian people, especially the dear people of Sistan-Baluchestan, that the criminals will receive very soon a response to their inhuman acts."

At least 30 people, including seven commanders of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards, were killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up at a meeting of the Guards in the city of Pisheen in Sistan-Baluchestan.
