Iran: US, Saudis supported attacks”

In a condolence message read to mourners ahead of a funeral for the victims of Wednesday's attack that killed 17 and wounded scores, Khamenei blasted leaders in Washington and Riyadh.

Two guards, 10 government staffers, and five civilians were killed in the Wednesday attacks which targeted the country's parliament and shrine of the late founder of Iran, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad-Zarif called it "repugnant" on Twitter and said the Iranian people "reject" the statement.

Iran's Supreme National Security Council deputy secretary Reza Seifollahi told state TV that the six attackers were Iranians who had joined Islamic State (IS).

Mohammad Javad Zarif called the comments "repugnant" and accused the US of supporting terror. "Iranian people reject such United States claims of friendship", said in a tweet. The twin attacks were claimed by the Islamic State group, media reports said.
