KABUL • Afghanistan said it had summoned Iran's representative to
complain about reports of Afghan minors being sentenced to death for
drug smuggling and the forced expulsion of refugees.

Deputy Foreign Minister Mohammad Kabir Farahi also raised concern at
the meeting on Thursday about claims that Afghan nationals were beaten
up in Tehran, the foreign ministry said in a statement. 

It is not unusual in Iran for drug smugglers of Afghan origin to be executed in border provinces.
A report
late October cited an Afghan human rights group saying a 17-year-old
may have been hanged for smuggling 1.5 kilograms (three pounds) of
heroin.

Afghanistan's Deputy Foreign Minister Mohammad Kabir Farahi raised
concern at the meeting  that  "these children are being misused by drug
smugglers and their conviction is contrary to human rights,
international standards and the very good relations between two
countries,"  The deputy minister asked the Iranian charge d'affaires,
Ghulam Raza Nafar, to take up the issue with his government.
