Two Iranian policemen died in Saturday's attack launched by four assailants, who disguised themselves as regular clients. According to a report by Tasnim news agency, the four "armed terrorists" were all killed in clashes with police forces.
"The attack came as protesters elsewhere in Iran marked 40 days since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in custody ignited the biggest anti-government movement in over a decade. It appeared to be unrelated to the demonstrations," the AP news agency recalled.
In a statement on Saturday, Pakistan strongly condemned the "terrorist attack" and extended "deepest condolences" to the bereaved families.
Bordering Afghanistan and Pakistan, the Sistan-Baluchestan province has been a target of several terrorist attacks on both civilians and security forces over the past years.
