Iran says the attackers who killed 12 people in the capital Tehran were Iranians who had joined so-called Islamic State.

Suicide bombers attacked parliament and the mausoleum of the Islamic Republic's founder Ayatollah Khomeini.

All the attackers were killed. Five people believed to be planning a third attack were arrested.

Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards accused Saudi Arabia and the US of being behind the attacks.
