TEHRAN - A commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards was killed in an explosion during clashes with Kurdish rebels in northwestern Iran, the Guards said in a statement on Friday.

It named the commander only as Qasemi and did not say when he died. Some opposition websites have said the overall commander of the Guards in the important city of Qom was killed.

"In recent clashes with PJAK in northwestern Iran, a car belonging to the Revolutionary Guards blew up and some members of the Guards, including Commander Qasemi, were killed," the statement said. PJAK is the Free Life Party of Kurdistan.
