Gunmen "Shouting Curses" Attack Ahmadinejad's Campaign Office
Gunmen shouting curses attacked Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s offices in the southern city of Zaheden today injuring a child and two others.
The gunmen shouting curses ripped Mahmoud’s photos off the wall before they shot the place up.
Gunmen attacked an office of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s re-election campaign in the southeastern city of Zahedan, injuring a child and two others, the state-run Fars news agency said.
The president, who is seeking a second four-year term, was in Tehran when the incident took place today near the border with Pakistan, according to Fars.
The assailants shouted curses against Ahmadinejad and tore down his photographs before firing their weapons, Mahdi Jahantab, a campaign spokesman, was cited as saying by Fars. They were arrested by the police while trying to flee, Fars said, without providing further information.
