Two members of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards have died of their injuries after a fire at a research facility west of Tehran, the Corps said on its website Monday.

Its Sepahnews website said two of three casualties in Sunday's blaze died in hospital "due to the seriousness of their injuries", naming them as "martyrs" Seyed Morteza Karimi and Hossein Abedi.

The website gave no details on the cause of the fire but said it was put out by the centre's firefighters.
