A hospital in Herat received the bodies of several Afghan migrants found dead at the country's border with Iran, where at least 23 Afghans are thought to have drowned.
Footage shows bodies being laid into coffins and transported with hospital vehicles at the Herat Regional Hospital.
«The claims regarding Afghans who were killed in the border — we can't confirm it, but we also can't reject it. We... Еще are working on learning more about that case and after that we will share it with the media,» said Farhard Jilani, governor of Herat province.
According to reports, the Foreign Ministry of Afghanistan has begun an inquiry into the allegations that dozens of Afghan migrants attempting to enter Iran were beaten and pushed into the Harirud river by Iranian border forces. The Iranian consulate in Herat, meanwhile, has reportedly rejected allegations of wrong doing by Iranian border police.
