TEHRAN (AFP) Iran has arrested six Afghan military officers and a soldier who said they were hunting for suspected Taliban militants in the border province of Sistan-Baluchestan, ISNA news agency reported on Sunday. Border police arrested the seven Afghan military personnel 50 metres inside Iranian territory, border police commander Hossein Zolfaghari said, quoted by ISNA, without giving a date. Zolfaghari said the arrested group said they were patrolling the area and hunting for Taliban (militants), and that they had no intention to enter Iranian soil. The case of the arrested people is being investigated by the judiciary, Zolfaghari said, adding that border police had confiscated a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and six rifles from the group. The arrests were made as the armed people driving a vehicle without a proper number plate crossed the border into Sistan-Baluchestan. They were stopped and arrested by border police after shots were fired, the officer said, without elaborating.
