Four gunmen opened fire at the Ayatollah Khomeini shrine in Iran on Wednesday killing a security guard. Simultaneously, four gunmen entered the Iran Parliament complex, opening fire and injuring a guard and several others. The firing in the Parliament is ongoing while Iran officials have not sent any confirmation on whether the two attacks were linked. Local Iranian media report that the Presidential building has been locked down and nobody is being allowed to enter or leave the premises.
