Reports According to Iranian media, online video recordings reported that angry protesters stormed the governor’s office in southeastern Iran on Tuesday, killing at least two fuel smugglers on the Pakistani border a day later. ۔
Iran, which has one of the lowest fuel prices in the world, is battling widespread smuggling in neighboring countries, particularly in the poor provinces of Sistan and Baluchestan, where security forces, armed separatists and drug dealers are involved. Clashes have been going on for a long time.
State television quoted Assistant Governor Muhammad Hadi Marashi as saying that two people had been shot dead on the Pakistani side of the border.
But Pakistani border officials say the protests began Monday after Iranian forces opened fire on people involved in the illegal Iranian fuel trade.
