ANKARA - A bomb blast killed one policemen on Wednesday in Iran's southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan near the Pakistan border, a local police official told the semi-official Tasnim news agency.

The predominantly Sunni Muslim province has been a hotbed of rebellion by Sunni Islamist militants against Iran's Shi'ite authorities. Many of Iran's Sunnis complain of discrimination, a charge denied by the state.

"A policeman was killed and several others were wounded after a booby trap bomb exploded in the town of Nikshahr," Tasnim quoted provincial police chief Hossein Rahimi as saying.

He said police were investigating the blast to determine who was responsible.
