Iranian state TV has reported a suicide bomb attack killing at least three people and wounding several others on Thursday in the Iranian southern port city of Chabahar.

“This morning a bomb inside a car exploded near a police station in Chabahar and four people were injured,” an official told state television, referring to it as a “terror incident.”

“The suicide attacker set off the explosion after stopping at police headquarters in Chabahar.”

The report went on to say that shooting could also be heard in the city on Thursday. Details were sketchy as the situation was still developing.

Videos shared on Twitter said to be taken from the scene show smoke rising into the sky with the sound of sirens heard in the background.  

State authorities did not identify who was behind the attack. No militant group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

Chabahar, near Iran's border with Pakistan on the Sea of Oman, is home to a new port recently built and is an economic free zone for the country.
