7 corpses of Afghans arrive in country from Iran
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) on Tuesday said corpses of slain Afghans killed in Iran have been delivered to their families after they were arrived in the country.
MoFA last week said eight Afghan nationals who were going to Europe illegally have been killed by alleged Iranian mafia groups. Among eight seven Afghan were killed by human trafficking group in the Zahidan city of neighboring Iran
But Pajhwok Afghan News came to know about some shocking reports that the slain Afghan nationals were killed brutally in Iran.
MoFA Spokesman Shikab Mustaghni said Afghan and Iranian diplomats had been contacted in Kabul and Zahidan to probe the dastardly incidents and report back to the MoFA.
He explained 13 Afghan nationals were lured by some agents amid promises to shift them to European countries through Iran without going into legal formalities.
The spokesman said that the slain Afghans had developed some sort of differences with their agents over their agreement. The slain Afghans gunned down three guards appointed by the agents.
In retaliation, the agents gunned down eight Afghans while five others Afghans escaped the scene.
He said Iranian security official found bodies of slain Afghans from a well and launched investigation into the incident.
