Two border guards were killed in a landmine explosion in western Iran, according to a local police chief on Tuesday.

Two other guards were injured in the blast that took place late Monday in the district of Qasr-e Shirin in the western Kermanshah province near Iraqi border, provincial police chief Behram Fazili said.

He said the landmine was a remnant of the 1980-1988 war between Iran and Iraq.
