Iran attacks: ISIL hits parliament and Khomeini mausoleum 

Twin attacks on the Iranian parliament and Ayatollah Khomeini’s mausoleum in the capital, Tehran, have killed at least 12 people and injured many more.

After hours of intermittent gunfire, officials said both incidents were over and the attackers were dead.

The Islamic State (IS) group has said it carried out the attacks, which would be a first in Iran.

Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards accused Saudi Arabia and the US of being behind the attacks.
