Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, October 10, 2013 4:16 PM EDT
An Iranian semi-official news agency is reporting an armed group has killed five members of the elite Revolutionary Guards in a Kurdish area near the Iraqi border.
The report did not name any group but the area is scene of occasional clashes between government forces and rebels.
This was the most serious incident between the two sides since April 2012, when four troops from the Guards were killed in clashes with rebels in the Kurdish area.
