Iranian security forces have shot dead a suspected suicide bomber.
Iranian news agencies reported the incident happened in the southern port city of Chabahar early on July 9 when security forces observed a man trying to enter a police headquarters.
The man reportedly fired on security personnel, wounding several of them, before he was shot dead.
Chabahar Governor Iraj Heydari said the man was "wearing a suicide vest and carrying a grenade."
The identity of the slain man was not released.
Chabahar is located in Iran's Sistan-Baluchistan Province, an impoverished area that is home to a Sunni majority.
In October 2012, a suicide bomber blew himself up outside a mosque in the same region.
In December 2010, two suicide bombers targeted a Shi'ite mourning procession in Chabahar, killing at least 38 people.
