Thousands attend funeral for victims of Iran bombing ,Iran blame UAE, KSA


Tens of thousands of mourners attended a funeral on Monday in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz for soldiers and civilians killed in an attack on a military parade.
Four militants attacked the Saturday parade marking the start of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, spraying the crowd with gunfire and killing 24 people.
Iranian officials blamed Arab separatists, backed by Gulf Arab allies of the US, for the operation.
Reporters on Monday saw members of the public and the military carrying coffins draped in the Iranian flag, some bearing pictures of the deceased.
The mourners, mostly wearing black, carried pictures of the dead along with banners reading “we will stand to the end” and “no to terrorism”.
Under blazing sun, crowds streamed in from all four main streets leading into the city-centre square where the funeral was held, three of them dedicated to men and the fourth to women.
In the square itself, also segregated, a woman dressed in the traditional Arab-style chador wailed loudly and held a picture of her son, Reza Shoaibi, a conscript who was among the dead.
As the funeral progressed, her wailing and expressions of sorrow steadily grew louder until she fainted. The heat became so intolerable that trucks sprayed water onto the crowd as temperatures hit 40 degrees Celsius.
Mourners waved red, green and black flags with revolutionary messages, as well as the flags of Arab tribes from the surrounding Khuzestan region.
Iranian authorities have blamed Arab separatists and accused the United States, Israel and Gulf Arab monarchies of backing Saturday’s “terrorist” attack.Khuzestan, which has a large ethnic Sunni Arab community, was a major battleground of the 1980s war with Iraq and it saw unrest in 2005 and 2011.
Kurdish rebels frequently attack military patrols on the border further north, but attacks on government targets in major cities are rare.
Monday’s ceremony began in front of the square’s Sarallah Mosque with speeches by generals and security officials.
Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said that arrests had already been made.
“The terrorists themselves have perished, our agents will identify their remnants and supporters to the last man. A major part of them have already been arrested,” he told the crowd.
