Gunshots reported inside parliament, Ayatollah Khomeini shrine

The Latest: Senate panel heads back reauthorizing intel law

If confirmed, Wednesday's attacks would be the first known to have been carried out by the radical Sunni Islamic State in mostly Shiite Iran.

That attack occurred at the same time as a shooting in the Iranian parliament, in which at least three people were injured after an attacker stormed the building in central Tehran, according to state-run Press TV.

The Iranian Intelligence Ministry says it foiled a third attack and is asking people to avoid public transportation, state broadcaster IRIB reports. The Islamic State group claimed both attacks.

If confirmed, it would mark the radical Sunni IS's first known attack inside the Shi'a-dominated Islamic republic, which has teamed up with Russian Federation and longtime ally Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to help Damascus battle armed opponents - including IS fighters - in Syria. The UAE also condemned the attacks.

Iran views its parliament, or majlis, as a symbol of participatory government in contrast to its main regional rivals, including Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies.

The simultaneous attacks targeted Iran's parliament building and a shrine dedicated to the Islamic Republic's first Supreme Leader, Ruhollah Khomeini. This year's holy month started nearly two weeks ago on May 26.

But the BBC reported that only one security guard was killed in Parliament. "This is a minor issue but reveals that the terrorists pursue troublemaking".

Iranian media says several attackers, including suicide bombers, took part in the assaults on both sites, with the parliament attack still underway. The Islamic State group claimed the attacks. It described the shrine attackers as "terrorists" and said one carried out a suicide bombing, without providing further details.

Two hours later, one of the Parliament attackers blew himself up, the state-owned television reported.

Shortly after, a similar attack took place at the mausoleum of the Ayatollah Khomeini, leaving several persons injured.

Iran has suffered from terrorist attacks in the past, but rarely in the cities or the capital. It said a security guard was killed and that one of the attackers was killed by security guards.

The violence in Tehran added to swelling sense of bedlam and instability across the Persian Gulf region.

Putin said the attacks underscore the need for deeper worldwide cooperation to fight terrorism and confirmed Moscow's willingness to aid Iran.

Attacks are highly rare in Tehran and other major cities though two Sunni militant groups, Jaish al-Adl and Jundallah, have been waging a deadly insurgency, mostly in more remote areas, for nearly a decade.
