Afghans say 10 killed at Iran border

KABUL — Iranian border guards killed 10 Afghan migrants and wounded another eight when hundreds tried to illegally cross into Iran in search of work, Afghanistan’s Interior Ministry said Sunday. Iran denied that any shooting took place.

Details of the incident Friday in Afghanistan’s northwestern Farah Province have been sketchy and often contradictory. An Interior Ministry statement said 300 Afghan laborers tried to cross into Iran illegally, looking for work. Iranian border guards opened fire, killing 10, it said.
