KABUL/HERAT — Iranian border guards killed 45 Afghan migrant workers trying to cross into Iran this month by forcing them into a raging mountain torrent at gunpoint, according to two Afghan lawmakers investigating the deaths. The incident has triggered a diplomatic crisis between the neighbors, who share trade, economic and cultural ties. Iran has denied that such an event took place on its soil.
