The Tasnim news agency said there were reports that women and children were among the injured.

According to security officials, the explosion was caused by a auto bomb going off in front of the Police Headquarters in Chabahar, Sistan and Baluchestan province.

Although rare, Iran has been targeted in recent years by militant attacks.

The SITE Intelligence Group reported that Sunni militant group Ansar al-Furqan had claimed responsibility for the attack. Arab separatists and the Islamic State (IS) issued competing claims for the attack, which prompted Iran to launch ballistic missiles at IS targets in Syria.

IRGC Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour, who is also at the scene of the terror attack, said the attack was carried out in a blind fashion and had no outcome for the terrorists.

Sistan-Baluchistan province, where the bombing hit, has always been a flashpoint, with a number of attacks reported in recent past. A year ago, the group claimed to have blown up an oil pipeline in Iran's southern Khuzestan province.

Tehran accuses its key regional rival Saudi Arabia and the United States of funding most of these groups, a charge Riyadh and Washington deny.

"In 2010, our security services intercepted & captures extremists en route from UAE".

Pakistan strongly condemns terrorist vehicle bomb attack in Chahbahar in brotherly neighbouring Iran that has taken lives of 3 innocent people while injuring others.

Chabahar is a key port city on the Gulf of Oman about 100 kilometers west of Iran's border with Pakistan.

Chabahar Port, which is being developed with funding from India, has been described as India's "golden gateway" that will help boost trade links to land-locked Afghanistan and central Asia, while bypassing its regional rival, Pakistan.

"Iran will bring terrorists and their masters to justice", he wrote on Twitter.

Such acts of violence will also "boost the Islamic Republic of Iran's resolve to fight terrorism", said Jahangiri, calling for all-out efforts to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice.

It hosts the operation of a joint port project between Iran and India.
