Two Iranian fishermen killed by Turkmenistan border guards

(MENAFN) Two Iranian fishermen were killed and another two were detained for trespassing in Turkmenistan, Iran's semi-official ILNA news agency has reported.

Wednesday's report says the incident happened on Tuesday night when the four young fishermen were sailing near the edge of Iranian territorial waters in the Caspian Sea.

The report did not identify the fishermen but said they ignored frequent warnings by Iranian authorities to observe the borderline.

Iran, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Russia share the Caspian Sea, an inland sea that is a lucrative source of caviar, gas and oil.
