Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham strongly condemned the Friday terrorist attack on the Shiite worshipers in Saudi Arabia, and called for bringing the criminals behind the attack to justice.

Those behind the terrorist act should be identified and brought to justice, Afkham said in reaction to the fatal suicide attack on Imam Ali (PBUH) Mosque in al-Qadeeh, in Saudi Arabia's Eastern Qatif province.

A suicide bomber blew himself at a Shiite mosque in the East of Saudi Arabia during Friday prayers.

Local residents said the explosion has killed and wounded at least 30 people.

The blast took place at the Imam Ali mosque in the town of al-Qadeeh, in al-Qatif province. One witness said there were at least 30 casualties in the attack, where more than 150 people were praying.

"We were doing the first part of the prayers when we heard the blast," Kamal Jaafar Hassan, one of the worshipers, said.

Another eyewitness said that at least five people have been killed and 20 others have been injured.
