    Iranian forces kills 50 Afghans, injures dozens

    According to local authorities in western Farah province of Afghanistan, dozens of Afghans were killed or injured after Iranian security forces opened fire on a group of Afghans inside the Iranian soil.A local security official speaking on the condition of anonymity said at least ten Afghans were killed and nine others were injured.However a eyewitness said Iranian forces opened fire on a group of 300 Afghans and around 50 people were killed and dozens of others were injured.

    In the meantime the local security official said the deceased individuals were residents of western Herat province and their dead bodies have been taken Lash-o-Joyand district.Provincial governor spokesman for Farah province also confirmed the report and said around nine people injured in today’s incident have been taken to hospital for treatment purposes.

    He said there are fears that the number of casualties could rise.

    On April 18, 2013, hundreds of Afghan protestors in Herat protested the killing of 13 young innocent men by Iranian forces.The incident took place after a group of Afghans illegally entered Iran from Pashmaki bordering region.
