Afghan Troops Arrested in Iran | News | English

Iran says it is investigating Afghan troops who shot at Iranian forces after crossing over the border.

Iran’s ISNA news agency says Iranian border guards encountered the Afghan troops traveling by car, armed with rifles and a grenade launcher.

Border police commander Hossein Zolfaghari said the six officers and one soldier were detained, and told officials they were looking for Taliban militants and crossed into Iran by accident.

Repeat with me: they were looking for Taliban militants and crosed into Iran by accident. Oh, really? Where were the militants going, which direction were they taking that get them so near Iranian border?
