Iran's Khosravi border crossing opened to Iranian and Iraqi pilgrims

Qasr-e Shirin, May 12, IRNA -- The international Khosravi border crossing was officially opened to Iranian and Iraqi pilgrims on Wednesday, Kermanshah Deputy Governor General for Political and Security Affairs Abdolhossein Rahimi said.

Talking to IRNA, Rahimi said the pilgrims can visit holy sites of the two countries individually or in groups.

The international Khosravi border crossing had been closed to pilgrims following unrest in holy cities of Iraq since April 10.

Rahimi noted that every day 5,000 pilgrims can travel to Iraq via this border point legally, adding Iran's Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization will provide security to the pilgrims across the border.

Qasr-e Shirin has the capacity to receive 5,000 pilgrims daily.
