TEHRAN, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) — Iran’s police confiscated 30 pigeons used for carrying illicit drugs in the western province of Kermanshah, semi-official ISNA news agency reported Tuesday.

The pigeons, with capsules carrying small amounts of drugs fixed on their feet, belong to a distributor of drugs, said Hossein Barari, police chief of Kermanshah Province.

They were selected from the pigeons used for carrying mails and knowing the addresses well, Barari added.

Iran, which shares a 900-km-long border with Afghanistan, has been used as the main conduit for smuggling Afghan drugs to Europe.
