FNA reports said that the public prosecutor, Fazlollah Shahbazi, who survived the attempted assassination, was only slightly injured.

The gunmen escaped the scene of the incident in the Iranian town of Khash.

Southeastern Iran has been the scene to a wave of terrorist attacks by the Jundullah militant group in recent years.

The militant group, whose leader Abdul Malik Rigi has appeared several times on the US state funded VOA, has been behind a series of kidnappings and murders in the southeastern province.

Earlier in April, the armed group abducted the Friday Prayers leader of Fahraj city in Kerman Province.
