Iranian state TV says one of the attackers taking part in an assault on parliament has blown himself up.

It says four attackers launched Wednesday’s assault on parliament, which has wounded at least eight people. Police have surrounded the building, where a legislative session was underway, and heavy gunfire could be heard from outside.

A separate assault at the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, in another part of Tehran, killed a security guard and wounded four other people. It was not immediately clear who was behind the attacks or if they were coordinated.
