Tehran reacted to allegations which suggested the Iranian border threw 57 Afghan migrants into the river, killing at least 23 of them.

Seyyed Abbas Mousavi, a spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry of Iran in a statement said ““This incident has occurred on the Afghan soil, and the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Border Police has denied that any such incident has taken place on the soil of our country.”

He also added “Considering the significance of the issue and in order to obtain detailed information about how the incident has occurred on the Afghan soil, we have been probing into the issue in cooperation with the officials of that country (Afghanistan).”

This comes as some of the Afghan migrants accused the Iranian forces, border guards, of throwing 57 people into a river which resulted in the killing of at least 23 of them, it has been reported.

Certain of the survivors of the incident have claimed that the Iranian border guards initially arrested the migrants from a bordering region and later threw them in to Harirod River.

According to reports, the incident took place earlier last week as the migrants were on their way to Iran, apparently for work opportunities.
