A bomb blast near the Iranian capital, Tehran, has killed at least three people and injured dozens more, according to Iranian government sources. According to Iranian and international media, the Iranian capital was shaken for the second time in a few days. It is reported that a powerful explosion took place in the city of Tehran on Tuesday evening, the flames of which were seen from a remote area.
The blast was so loud that its sound could be heard in remote areas. Iranian government sources say the blast took place at a medical clinic in Tehran. The blast was caused by an exploding gas cylinder, killing 13 people and injuring several others. The area was cordoned off after the incident and the injured were rushed to a hospital.
