KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Three Afghan nationals were killed after Iranian security forces opened fire at their vehicle in Yazd province on Friday, reports said.

However, the Afghan Embassy in Tehran quoted Iranian sources said the deaths resulted from a car accident due to high speed.

The embassy said the Afghan consulate in the province had started its investigation into the incident.

The embassy told the BCC that one of the surviving Afghan nationals said Iran police opened fire at their vehicle which caught fire.

The vehicle carried 13 Afghan nationals and three of them were killed and several others wounded in the police firing.

The Iranian media reported that three people were killed and eight others wounded in the incident.

It comes amid an ongoing joint investigation of Afghanistaninfo-icon and Iran into the alleged killing of 20 Afghans by Iranian security guards last month.
