The United States will face "fallout" from a deadly rebel bomb attack in southeast Iran, a senior Revolutionary Guards commander was quoted as saying by a semi-official Iranian news agency, Reuters reported Saturday.

Massoud Jazayeri, deputy head of the dominant ideological wing of Iran's armed forces, did not elaborate on what he meant. Iran has accused Washington of backing Jundollah, the group that claimed responsibility for Thursday's blasts that killed 28 people and wounded 306, including members of the Guards.

"Jundollah has been supported by America for its terrorist acts in the past ... America will have to await the fallout of such criminal and savage measures," Jazayeri said to the Iranian news agency.
