Iran president vows "crushing response" to Ahvaz attack


Iran's President Hassan Rouhani vowed a "crushing response" to Saturday's attack on a military parade in the city of Ahvaz near the Iraqi border that left at least 29 people dead.

"The response of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the smallest threat will be crushing", Rouhani said in a statement on his official website. "Those who give intelligence and propaganda support to these terrorists must answer for it."
