According to the Tasnim news agency, an assailant shot and killed an Iranian journalist in the province of Khuzestan in the country’s southwest.
A shooter entered a cafe in Izeh city and opened fire on Akbar Limuchi, the head editor of the Tavsa-e-Jonoob (Expansion of the South) newspaper, killing him.
The shooting allowed the assailant to escape.
An investigation has been opened by the police to find the offender.
Attacks, the reasons for which are still unknown, have been more frequently reported throughout the nation in recent weeks.
A leading Iranian priest and his wife, as well as a senior police investigator, were all assassinated in separate incidents in April.
In addition, a car-ramming event resulted in the injuries of two religious students.
Since last autumn, when Mahsa Amini, an Iranian-Kurdish lady, died while in police custody for allegedly breaking clothing standards, Iran has been rocked by turmoil.
