Attack On
Two Dead

It looks like there are people trying to kill the Iranian President before he does what he says he's going to do:

The local driver and one of Ahmadinejad's bodyguards were killed, on Thursday evening, in southeast Iran near the City of Zabol after an attack against the Presidential motorcade. Another bodyguard has been seriously injured during the shoot out.

Ahmadinejad who had started a tour of the Sistan-Baloochestan province, since Wednesday, was not in the car at the time of the attack. He returned to Tehran, on Friday, after making a speech on the need to increase the security in Iran and especially in the province.

Official press is declaring that the ambush was set by "Armed Bandits" which is the usual label used to qualify armed opponents to the Islamic regime. The Islamist Jomhoori e Eslami daily, close to the Supreme Leader, is stating:

"In the armed clash, the driver of the vehicle, a local member of the security service, and a president's bodyguard were killed, while another bodyguard was injured".

Rumors are stating that worried circles inside the Islamic regime's itself might have been involved in somehow communicating the necessary information for the identification of the vehicle to the assailants.

Interesting times.
