Iran summoned the envoys of the Netherlands, Denmark and Britain late on Saturday over a deadly terrorist attack on a military parade in the country's southwest. 
Earlier in the day, gunmen disguised as soldiers targeted a stand in Ahvaz, Khuzestan Province, where officials and spectators had gathered to watch an annual event marking the start of the 1980-88 Iraq-imposed war.  
At least 24 people, including women, children and members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, were killed and more than 60 were wounded.
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said Iran's strong protest against the harboring of members of Al-Ahvaziya terrorist group—which claimed responsibility for the assault—by the Netherlands and Denmark was conveyed to their ambassadors in separate meetings, IRNA reported.
