TEHRAN, Jun. 03 (MNA) – An explosion at the parking lot of a hypermarket in Shiraz on early Sat. has left 37 people wounded, head of Iran's Center for Emergency Medical Services confirmed.

Kolivand maintained that most of the injured received outpatient treatment and 16 of the injured were transferred to hospitals. He added that their general condition is favorable.
The wave of the explosion has also caused damage to the whole building as well as a number of buildings nearby.
The cause of the explosion has not yet been determined and the case is under investigation.
