Ramadan Death Count: Iran: 03/05/20

(Gulran)  On Friday Iranian border guards who came across around 70 migrants from Afghanistan in search of work decided to teach them a lesson they wouldn’t forget, so they offered them work , and then when the day was finished , instead of payment they were tortured and then driven to the Harirud river which forms the border between Afghanistan and Iran and told to jump in or be shot.  Of the roughly 70 people.  Whilst the majority made it across the river, 7 bodies have been recovered with another approximately  30 people missing.

Iran has denied the incident. I'm adding 7 to the list, which I will update when more information is forthcoming 

Ramadan death toll stands at 97
