Explosions in Tehran near State Broadcasting Headquarters rattle Iran



A loud explosion shook northern Tehran near the headquarters of the state broadcaster in the early hours of Saturday morning, according to security officials who spoke to official state media.

The explosion of an unidentified object happened inside Mellat Park, a large and popular green area in the capital next to the headquarters of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting. No injuries were reported, Iranian media said, and it was not certain whether the blast was the result of an accident or an attack.

“There was only one explosion,” Hamidreza Goudarzi, deputy head of security for Tehran province, said in a statement to the Tasnim News Agency.

Asked whether this was a terrorist attack, Goudarzi said investigators were on the scene and looked at the extent and details of the explosion.
