Iran's official news agency says that police believe an explosion that ripped through a packed mosque in the city of Shiraz was not intentionally set.

The casualties in Saturday's blast had risen to 11 people dead and 191 wounded by Sunday.

The IRNA news agency reports that Gen. Ali Moayyedi's investigation found remnants of ammunition from a military exhibition recently held at the mosque. Moayyedi says he rejects the possibility of an intentional bombing and that the leftover ammunition could have caused it.

A police official said Saturday that a homemade bomb caused the explosion. Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini said Sunday that no group has claimed responsibility.
