The Iranian authorities have denied reports on an alleged explosion that took place in the province of Tehran late on Thursday, said the head of one of the local cities on Friday, APA reports quoting IRIB broadcaster.

"There was no explosion in the city of Qods, or even in [neighbouring] Garmdareh," the city's governor, Leila Vaseghi, said, adding that a reason for the power outage was a malfunction in one of the local hospitals that lasted for around five minutes.

According to several news outlets, a number of Iran's military and training sites are located in the district.
