Another man succumbs to injuries following terror attack at Iran’s Shah Cheragh shrine

The death toll from Sunday’s terrorist attack on the Shah Cheragh shrine in southern Iran has risen to two, as a man who was critically injured during the attack has succumbed to his gunshot wounds.

Chief Justice of Fars Province Kazem Mousavi said on Monday that the man, who was in critical condition, passed away earlier in the day.

On Sunday night, a terrorist went on a shooting spree in the holy shrine in Shiraz, killing one and injuring 10 others.

Early on Monday morning, Mousavi said four suspects linked to the incident had been arrested and added that they are all of foreign origins.

He added that the main terrorist, who started shooting at people in the shrine and was immediately arrested, has been handed over to investigators for further interrogation.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi on Sunday ordered Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi and Governor of Fars Province Mohammad Hadi Imaniyeh to swiftly identify and punish the perpetrators of the terrorist attack.
