Iran is vowing revenge following twin attacks that killed at least 13 people and injured dozens of others in Tehran on Wednesday.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group says it is responsible and is promising more Iranian attacks.

Iran's intelligence agency said the attackers were Iranian citizens committed to "acts of terror".

Iran's Revolutionary Guard blames Saudi Arabia and the US. Whoever is to blame, it ramps up the tension in a region already on edge.

US President Donald Trump said states that sponsor terrorism "risk falling victim to the evil they promote".

Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran's foreign minister, says Trump's reaction is "repugnant".

With all the finger-pointing around the Middle East, what hope for a peaceful solution?
