A bomb explosion in a mosque in southern Iran Saturday killed several of people, state television reported. An initial television report said scores had been killed in the bombing in the city of Shiraz, about 559 miles south of the capital Tehran. But it later revised its death toll to several and said an unspecified number of people were also injured.

The semi-official Fars news agency said eight people were killed and more than 66 injured. The official IRNA news agency said several people were injured but added that no official reports were yet available on deaths. There was no immediate explanation for the discrepancies in the reports.
