Gunmen wounded three people at one of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's campaign offices in southeast Iran on Friday, a day after a bombing in a Shi'ite mosque in the same city killed 25 people, the official news agency said. The attacks took place in Zahedan, the capital of a lawless province near Pakistan and Afghanistan that has witnessed attacks by Jundallah, a militant group that claims to be fighting for the rights of minority Sunnis and is believed to have al-Qaida links. Abdel Raouf Rigi, a Jundallah spokesman, told Al-Arabiya television that his group was responsible for Thursday's attack and said it was carried out by a suicide bomber targeting a secret meeting of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards that was taking place inside the mosque. Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, blamed "interventionist powers" of trying to incite sectarian conflict with the mosque bombing, and the country's interior minister specifically accused the US and Israel.
