At least 4 killed in terrorist attack on shrine in Iranian city of Shiraz

Two gunmen attempted to enter the Shah Cheragh shrine in the Iranian city of Shiraz on Sunday and opened fire on visitors, killing at least four people and injuring several others.

One of the attackers was arrested while the other escaped, according to state media.

Shah Cheragh was the scene of another attack in October, claimed by Islamic State (IS), when 13 people died. No group has immediately claimed the latest attack.

The Iranian government has condemned the attack and vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice.

The attack is a reminder of the growing threat of terrorism in Iran. The country has been targeted by IS and other extremist groups in the past, and the government has been cracking down on suspected terrorists.

The attack is also a tragedy for the people of Shiraz, who are mourning the loss of their loved ones. The Shah Cheragh shrine is a popular tourist destination and a place of great importance to the Shia Muslim community.
