Security officials arrested suspects in a suicide bombing that killed five senior Revolutionary Guard commanders and dozens of others, Iran's police chief said Wednesday. Gen. Esmaeil Ahmadi Moghadam was quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying those who carried out Sunday's bombing entered Iran from neighboring Pakistan. A suicide bomber killed 15 members of the powerful Guard force, including five senior commanders, and at least 32 others in Iran's southeast, near the Pakistani border. The dead included the deputy commander of the Guard's ground force as well as a chief provincial Guard commander.
