Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari said Monday that the Sunni rebel group known as Jundallah, or Soldiers of God, was at work to disrupt security in Iran and he vowed a crushing response. The official IRNA news agency quoted Jafari as saying that the group behind Sunday's attack had links with American, British and Pakistani intelligence and operated under their support and orders.
