Police killed in armed conflict in southeast Iran

An armed clash in the southeastern Iranian province of Kerman has left a police officer and six members of an armed group killed.

Colonel Amin Ghafouri, the spokesman of the Police Headquarters of Kerman Province, told Tasnim News Agency that a police officer, identified as Colonel Ali Barzegar, was killed in the clash that erupted on Monday evening.

He said a funeral ceremony will be held in Kerman on Tuesday.

The province witnesses occasional skirmishes between law enforcement forces and drug traffickers, who smuggle drug consignments from neighboring Afghanistan.

Pakistan-based armed bandits are also another scourge for the police forces in the region.
