"Morteza Ali-Mohammadi was martyred in the incident and the five critically injured have been transferred to the hospital", Nikshahr's prosecutor Mohsen Golmohammadi told the semi-official YJC news agency.

Authorities did not provide details about the nature of Saturday's assault and no group immediately claimed responsibility. The terrorist outfit, which is funded by Saudi Arabia, also claimed a bombing which injured at least four police officers in the same province last Wednesday.

He went on to say that efforts are underway to arrest the culprits behind the attack.

An hour after the attack a Twitter account said to be linked with Jaysh-ol-Adl, a Sunni militant group took responsibility for the attack.

The surface to surface missile named Hoveizeh is from the Soumar family of cruise missiles, which Iran added to its arsenal in 2015, Iranian Defence Minister Amir Hatami said.
