Of the 25 killed, 12 were from Ahvaz and the rest from elsewhere in Khuzestan. Soldiers crawled about as gunfire crackled.

Describing the attack on defenseless people as an act of cowardice, the Leader noted, "According to [available] reports, this cowardly act has been perpetrated by the same people who are saved by Americans whenever they face a hard situation in Iraq and Syria" and whose operations are being financed by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Iran has declared a national day of mourning.

A spokesman for the al-Ahwaz National Resistance, an umbrella movement for Arab separatist groups fighting for independence for Khuzestan province, has said it carried out the attack.

"Iran's answer (to this attack) is forthcoming within the framework of law and our national interests", said Mr Rouhani, adding that the USA would regret its "aggressiveness". He adds: 'We will destroy them with a strong and guerrilla-style attack, inshallah (God willing)'.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, asked by a Fox News interviewer if the United States played any role in the attack, said: "When you have a security incident at home, blaming others is an enormous mistake".

President Donald Trump himself often offers quick responses on Twitter to suspected terrorist attacks, especially those that appear to have been perpetrated by the Islamic State extremist group. In a statement on Sunday, the paramilitary organization said it knows where the attack came from, and threatened the masterminds "will face a deadly and unforgettable vengeance in the near future".

"We will punish the terrorists, one by one", he promised the crowd.

The German just has not been good throughout and the trend continued in a game that really should have favored him. Walcott has featured in all 5 of Everton's Premier League games and their sole EFL Cup game as well.

The Islamic State group also claimed Saturday's attack, initially offering incorrect information about it and later publishing a video of three men it identified as the attackers.

'We are Muslims, they are kafirs (non-believers),' the man says. Iranian leaders blamed the US and Israel and threatened retaliation.

Rohani and U.S. President Donald Trump are both attending the UN General Assembly in NY this week.

At Monday's funeral, however, those attending rallied around the Iranian government and its soldiers.

Monjazi was in the wheelchair watching the parade when the gunshots erupted and was unable to find shelter from the hail of bullets.

Iranian boys hold images of one of the victims, 4-year-old Mohammad Taha Eghdami, during a public funeral ceremony for those killed in the attack in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz on September 24.

Mahmoud Falaki, a teacher attending the funerals, said the ceremony showed Iranians "are always ready to sacrifice ourselves for our country".

Another Ahvaz resident, Ghaseem Farhani, said: "Just look at the crowd, with no fear, people are gathered here to see their soldiers and martyrs off to heaven".
