TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s state television news website says four “terrorists,” including a suicide bomber, have attacked the shrine of the late leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in the capital, Tehran, killing a security guard and wounding four people.

State television said one of the attackers was killed by security guards and that a woman was arrested following Wednesday’s attack.

Iranian media earlier reported a shooting inside the parliament building that wounded a security guard, without providing further details. It was not immediately clear if the attacks were related.
