Iran clash kills 3 Revolutionary Guards

Three members of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards were killed in clashes this week with unidentified "counter-revolutionary forces", an Iranian news agency said on Wednesday.

The semi-official Mehr news agency said the three guards were killed on Tuesday in the city of Khoy in northwest Iran where a prosecutor was shot dead in January. Iran said a Kurdish guerrilla group was behind that incident.

The agency described the attackers as "counter-revolutionary agents" but gave no more details on their identity. It said a funeral for the dead would be held on Thursday.

The Revolutionary Guards is one of the most powerful bodies in Iran's ruling establishment.
