TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Remains of 60 Iranian troops unearthed in Iraq more than three decades after the end of an imposed war on Iran in the 1980s were repatriated from the Arab country on Wednesday.
In a ceremony at Khosravi border crossing west of Iran, 60 coffins draped in the Iranian flag were handed over to Iranian officials and then transferred to the city of Qasr-e-Shirin. A number of Iranian and Iraqi officials took part in the ceremony, during which the bodies of 80 Iraqi soldiers found in former battlefields were also handed over to Iraqi authorities.
