At least three people have been killed following a suicide vehicle bombing attack near a police post in Iran's southern port city of Chabahar, state television Press TV reported, quoting security and local officials.

The TV reported there were sounds of explosions and shooting in the city on Thursday.

The blast near Chabahar's police headquarters on Shahid Rigi Boulevard has been confirmed by Mohammad Hadi Marashi, the deputy security chief of the province.

The state news agency IRNA said some 24 people had been wounded.

Rahmdel Bameri, a provincial official, said a suicide attacker driving a vehicle loaded with explosives drove up to the police headquarters. No militant group has immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.

Sistan-Baluchistan province, where the bombing hit, has always been a flashpoint, with Pakistan-based Baluchi separatists and jihadists carrying out cross-border attacks.

Iranian authorities have not identifed the perpetrator yet.
