US President Barak Obama released a statement on Wednesday harshly criticizing the double-suicide bombing in the Iranian city of Chabahar that killed at least 39 Iranians as a "cowardly act."

"I strongly condemn the outrageous terrorist attack on a mosque in Chabahar, Iran," Obama said in the statement. He continued, "The murder of innocent civilians in their place of worship during Ashoura is a despicable offense, and those who carried it out must be held accountable.  This is a disgraceful and cowardly act."

Obama added, "The United States stands with the families and loved ones of those killed and injured, and with the Iranian people, in the face of this injustice."
