Some Iranian leaders are blaming indirectly blaming America for two suicide bombs that were detonated outside of a mosque, The New York Times is reporting.

Two bombers, one in women’s clothing, detonated their explosives outside the southeastern Iranian city of Zahedan and an official said on Friday that 26 people had been killed and 300 injured, including members of the powerful Revolutionary Guards Corps.

The Sunni Muslim militant group Jundallah claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement on its Web site, saying that two of its “faithful and brave sons” had blown themselves up amid a group of Revolutionary Guards who had gathered at a religious meeting hall for a commemoration of their organization.

Earlier, Yadollah Javani, a high-ranking Revolutionary Guards Corps official, was quoted as saying the attack “points to the involvement of terrorist groups under the auspices of the United States, Israel and some Western countries” seeking to foment sectarian strife.
