Tehran: An Iranian semi-official news agency reports an explosion from a land mine left over from the Iran-Iraq war of the 1980s has killed six people and injured one.

The today's report by Mehr says the explosion happened yesterday, during a minesweeping operation near the town of Marivan, some 490 kilometers southwest of Tehran.

Explosions from leftover munitions lead to casualties in Iran from time to time.
