Suicide bomber killed in Tehran-Fars

(Adds details)

TEHRAN, June 20 (Reuters) - A suicide bomber was killed and two people were wounded in Tehran on Saturday, near the shrine of Iran’s revolutionary founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency reported.

"A suicide bomber was killed at the northern wing of Imam Khomeini’s shrine. Two people were injured," Fars said.

It did not explain the exact circumstances.

Iranian riot police used teargas elsewhere in Tehran to disperse demonstrators protesting against a disputed presidential election, a witness said. (Editing by Jon Boyle)
