Chabahar lies in Sistan-Baluchistan province which has always been a flashpoint, with Pakistan-based Baluchi separatists and Sunni Muslim extremists carrying out cross-border attacks targeting the Shiite authorities.

At least three people have been killed following a suicide vehicle bombing attack near a police post in Iran's southern port city of Chabahar, state television Press TV reported, quoting security and local officials.

"Police stopped the explosive-laden auto and started firing at the driver. who then set off the explosion near the police headquarters in Chabahar", said Bameri.

A suicide auto bombing was followed by an armed assault in Chabahar, Iran.

Mohammad Hadi Marashi, deputy governor for security affairs, told state TV that two police officers were killed in the attack. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Suicide bombings are rare in Iran, but Sunni militant groups have carried out several attacks on Iranian security forces in the Sistan-Baluchestan province in recent years.

In September, gunmen disguised as soldiers opened fire on a military parade in Ahvaz, killing and wounding dozens. No militant group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

"Foreign-backed terrorists kill & wound innocents in Chabahar", Zarif said on Twitter on December 6.

Tehran often blames the United States, Saudi Arabia and Israel for backing groups to destabilize Iran, something its rivals deny.

Chabahar lies some 100 kilometres (60 miles) west of the Pakistan border and is home to a large Balochi community which straddles the two countries.
