Tehran (Iran): At least two people are dead and several more injured in twin shooting and suicide bomb attacks at the Iranian parliament and and the tomb of revolutionary founder Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran today.

One attacker was shot dead at the scene and one woman arrested. It is not clear if the other gunmen have been apprehended. 

A security guard was killed when four gunmen burst into Tehran’s parliament complex, while a gardener was reported dead when several armed assailants entered the grounds of Khomeini’s mausoleum in the south of the city, according to the ISNA news agency.

An official at Khomeini’s mausoleum in south Tehran said “three or four” people had entered via the western entrance and opened fire, killing the gardener and wounding several people, according to the Fars news agency.

Fars said a female suicide attacker blew herself up outside the shrine and published photos showing the explosion.
