TEHRAN, Dec. 15 (Xinhua) -- Two suicide attacks in southeastern Iran on Wednesday claimed several lives and wounded some others, local media reported.

In two separate bombing attacks in Iran's southeastern city of Chabahar targeting mourners at a ceremony on a religious occasion, several of them were killed and some others were injured, the report of the semi-official Fars news agency said.

Two bombs exploded a few hours ago, one in front of the governor's office building of Chabahar and the other close to the emergency car of Iran's Red Crescent Society.

Meanwhile, the state IRINN TV said that one of the three suicide attackers before the governor's office building was shot, and another was arrested.

The IRIB state TV in another report put the casualties at 10.
