8 Border Guards Killed in Terror Attack

Eight border guards were killed by terrorists in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan near the border with Pakistan, a provincial official said.  The eight were killed in a border area in the southeastern town of Negur on Monday when clashes broke out with terrorists who had entered Iran via the Pakistani border, IRNA quoted Sistan and Baluchestan Deputy Governor Ali Asghar Mirshekari as saying. Negur is the main town of Dashtiari district in the Chabahar County, one of Iran’s southernmost regions. During the ensuing gun battle, three of the assailants were also killed by Iranian forces. Mirshekari added that the terrorists fled to Pakistan after the incident and that a request had been made to Pakistan to arrest the culprits and hand them over to Iranian authorities.
