According to Fars, some reports indicate that the missing officers may have been taken into Pakistan. Iranian border officials met with their Pakistani counterparts yesterday to follow up on the matter.

 

According to Shargh daily, the border guards were at a village close to the town of Sarbaz before they went missing.

Last October, fourteen Iranian border officers were killed in an attack for which Sunni militant group, Jeysh-ol-adl, took responsibility.
