Islamic State on Wednesday said it was responsible for the twin attacks on Iran’s Parliament and the mausoleum of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, which have claimed the lives of six people. Six attackers were also reportedly killed.

At least 12 people were killed and 42 others were wounded Wednesday morning in a pair of devastating attacks on two of Iran’s most potent symbols: the national Parliament and the mausoleum of the Islamic Republic’s founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

In addition to the 12 victims, six assailants were killed: four at the Parliament, and two at the mausoleum.
