Map - Iran
Tehran has demanded that Pakistan arrest and hand over individuals responsible for planning or carrying out an attack on October 25 in Sistan-Baluchistan Province.

Iran's Press TV quotes Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham as saying Tehran expects Pakistan to abide by the terms of a bilateral security agreement and extradite those who are behind the incident, in which 14 Iranian border guards were killed.

Iran said the individuals responsible for the attack crossed over from Pakistan and then returned with four captive Iranian police officers. The four are still missing.

The request comes as another Iranian news agency, MEHR, reported on November 5 that Iranian border guards had shot dead four suspected terrorists and wounded three others who were trying to cross into Iran from Pakistan.
