Iran's intelligence ministry said on Thursday that five of the gunmen and bombers were Iranian members of ISIL who had fought in the militants' strongholds in Syria and Iraq.

Five people launched an attack Wednesday on Iran's Parliament building as well as a shine in honor of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, killing at least 17 people.

"Especially when we see the United States position and the Senate sanctions bill [the same day as the terrorist attacks on Tehran which killed 17 people], all their objectives are revealed", Larijani said, adding "the enemy's strategy is to damage Iran's dignity and busy our authorities with side issues". The attacks were the first claimed by ISIS inside tightly controlled Shi'ite Iran, one of the powers leading the fight against Sunni militants in the region.

It says dozens of people have been detained.

"We possess documents and information showing the direct supports by the USA imperialism for this highly disgusting stream in the region which has destroyed the Islamic countries and created a wave of massacres and clashes", Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mostafa Izadi said.

The assailants attacked the parliament building in the morning.

The parliament hosted a funeral ceremony for the victims in Tehran on Friday attended by the top brass.

Iranian Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said in a televised interview on Saturday that the mastermind of the Tehran terrorist attacks had been killed earlier in the day.

Local police in Iran's western province of Kermanshah also said that two people had been arrested in connection with the double attacks, while over 90 handguns had been discovered during a security operation in Ravansar County.

The Iranian Intelligence Ministry has announced that the mastermind behind the Tehran terrorist attacks has been killed.

"Six people who were certainly connected to Wednesday's terrorist attacks in Teheran were identified and arrested", Mr Aliakbar Garousi was quoted as saying by the Fars news agency.

Tehran police said the vehicle the attackers used on Wednesday was discovered on Saturday in the city centre.
