US ‘behind Iran terror attack’, says Tehran

The terror attack that killed dozens in southeastern Iran is on the front page of today’s Tehran Times. We also take a look at the front pages of the Italian papers which cover the Iranian attack. Theran has pointed the finger at the US which denie

The Tehran Times puts the death toll at 29 after a brutal terrorist attack in southeastern Iran, near the Pakistani border. A group called Jundallah is thought to be behind the attack, however the Speaker of the Majlis (Iranian Parliament) has come out saying foreigners were involved and the terrorist attack was the result of US action. “The US has long supported the Jundallah organization
in order to undermine the close relations between the Revolutionary Guards and the people,” Ali Larijani said.

Moving to the Italian press, the headline in today’s Corriere della Serra is “Revolutionary Guard under attack, mounting tension between Iran and America” The paper puts the death toll at 49. La Stampa also covers Tehran’s claim of American involvement, “Tehran says ‘USA involved’. The reply: ‘Not true. We condemn this act.’”

La Stampa’s front page also covers this weekend’s gang violence in Rio.

Other stories covered in today’s international papers:

O Globo
Rio de Janeiro’s biggest-selling paper says the gang violence which saw some 15 die this weekend in Rio could have been ordered from a federal prison. It is thought incarcerated gang leaders may have given the commands in a bid to regain control of a favela for the sale of drugs.


Taggespiegel
This German daily leads with emerging differences between newly-elected coalition partners, the Christian Democrats and the Free Democrats. They cannot agree on finances and have given themselves seven days to resolve the issue. The Free Democrats are in favour of tax relief to the tune of 35 billion euros which many in the Christian Democrats view as irresponsible in a time of crisis.

The Guardian
This front page photo of protestors tied up with bags over their heads was taken at a copper mine in Peru. The mine is owned by British company Monterrico Metals. Protesters were detained and allegedly tortured by police. They say they were sprayed with noxious substances before being hooded and beaten. Some say the police acted on orders given by the company’s managers. Monterrico Metals says they had no control over the police operation.
