Today a pair of explosions at a commemoration for Iran’s former top military general Qassim Suleimani killed at least 103 people and wounded another 171, according to Iranian officials.

Blasts sowed fear and grief in Iran and heightened tensions in the broader region even further a day after an explosion killed several Hamas officials in a suburb of Beirut, Lebanon.

Officials of Iran told state media that a pair of bombs placed in bags along the road toward the cemetery in Kerman, Iran, exploded as a procession of people was on its way there to commemorate the four-year anniversary of General Suleimani’s assassination by the United States.

Officials said the bags appeared to have been detonated via remote control, leaving bodies in pieces on the ground.
