In a communique, the Sunni jihadist group Ansar al-Furqan claimed responsibility for the attack, according to the Washington-based SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors extremist activity online.

Iranian officials and state media are reporting that two security guards have been killed in a suicide attack outside police headquarters in the southeastern port city of Chabahar. Reuters could not verify their authenticity.

Immediately after the bomber detonated the auto bomb, gunmen attempted to storm the police headquarters but were killed by security forces, Iranian media reported.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

In 2010, two suicide bombers killed at least 28 people, including some of the elite Revolutionary Guards, at a Shi'ite mosque in southeast Iran, an attack Iranian leaders said was backed by the United States.

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

Iran´s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says "such crimes won´t go unpunished".

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.

Chabahar lies some 100 kilometres (60 miles) west of the Pakistan border and is home to a large Balochi community which straddles the two countries.
