TEHRAN, Iran — Iran’s state TV says the military has dismissed several commanders from service and others face court proceedings for alleged negligence after last month’s abduction of five Iranian border guards by Pakistan-based militants.
The Monday report on the state TV website quotes border guard commander Hossein Zolfaghari as saying that all five captive border guards are still unharmed.
