A colonel in Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) has been shot dead in a rare assassination in Tehran, capital of Iran.

Two gunmen on a motorbike were reported to have shot Colonel Sayad Khodai five times in a car outside his home.

So far, no group has claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attack, and a manhunt is under way for the gunmen.

According to reports, this is the biggest security breach in Iran since 2020 when a leading nuclear scientist was killed.
