Construction of walls and border fences fail to stop desperate Pakistanis and Afghans making their way to Europe via Iran
Iran authorities revealed the arrest and subsequent deportation of 150 people in the Western Baluchistan, within past few days. The men were arrested along the border with Pakistan. The official police website added that they have since been deported.
Iranian authorities have dug trenches, constructed walls and erected security fences along the border with East Baluchistan. There also is heavy presence of security personals with heavy armaments, yet they fail to stop the drug and human trafficking. It is believed that high ranking Iranian officials are gaining from the drug trade in particular.
The original population in either side of the border regards the security arrangements as eye-wash. They believe its mere purpose is to identify and eliminate Baluch political activists who try to communicate with their people across.
