Quetta: A Pakistani border official has accused Iranian security personnel of crossing into Pakistan, shooting to death one man and wounding another.

Mir Zafar Bangulzai says Iranian forces took the two men, apparently smugglers, from the Mazah Sar area of southwest Baluchistan province back across the border after the incident Sunday evening.

Bangulzai says Pakistani border officials followed the foreign forces into Iran, retrieved the two men and brought them back to Pakistan. They also detained three Iranian border security personnel.

Bangulzai says the man who was shot, Saeed Rigi,and the man who was wounded, his brother, Islam Rigi, were smugglers.

The incident occurred in a desolate area where the border is not clearly marked.
