Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has strongly condemned today's suicide bombings at a mosque in Iran which have reportedly killed dozens of people and injured many more.
“This senseless act of terrorism at a place of worship makes it all the more reprehensible,” Mr. Ban said in a statement issued by his spokesperson.
According to press reports, the twin bombings took place at a Shi'a mosque in the city of Zahedan in south-east Iran shortly after evening services.
In his statement, the Secretary-General extended his condolences to the victims' families and to Iran's Government and people.
The Security Council, in a press statement, also condemned today's attack, underlining the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of this “reprehensible act of terrorism” to justice.
