DUBAI (Reuters) - Two people were killed and two wounded in a drive-by shooting attack at a Shi'ite Muslim mourning ceremony in Iran late on Friday night, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

Unknown assailants in a car approached a crowd of Shi'ites in the city of Dezful, in the south-western province of Khuzestan, and opened fire at around 2230 (1900 GMT) on Friday, Fars said, citing an eyewitness.
