    President Hassan Rouhani vows ‘crushing response’ following gun attack that killed at least 29 and wounded 50.


    The parade was organised to mark the anniversary of the Iran-Iraq war

    Four gunmen dressed in fatigues opened fire at a military parade in southwestern Iran, killing at least 29 people including women and children.

    The brazen attack on Saturday in the city of Ahvaz came as the country marked the anniversary of the start of its 1980-1988 war with Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, and prompted President Hassan Rouhani to warn of a “crushing response”.

      Murderer receives veterans benefit for killing a policewoman because it gave him PTSD even though he never spent a day in the military (his father did). Trudeau avoids answering.
