Iran and the Kurdistan region are currently engaged in trade through three official and as many non-official border stations. Last year, bilateral trade between the two was estimated at $4.5 billion. Iran has announced it plans to expand trade but crush the cross- border smuggling of goods by locals. The two official border gates of Haji Omran and Parwiz Khan between Iran and the Kurdistan region are used for larger trade between the countries, with goods crossing on trucks and trailers. In 2012, restrictions on visitors and vehicles between the two countries were lifted, allowing travelers free movement across the border without visa permits.

A Yazidi woman who suffered for 10 months as a sex slave under the Islamic State group (IS) came to Washington to push for help for the traumatized, displaced Yazidi community in northern Iraq and the hundreds of others who remain in IS bondage. Shireen Jardo, 25, met with several U.S. congressmen and federal officials along with Iraqi aid groups and media. "I told them to rescue our people and our land from IS," Jardo said in an interview with VOA on Friday. "I asked them: 'How much longer should we wait until we hear a word on our people who are still under IS?'" At least 9,900 of Iraq's Yazidis were killed or kidnapped in an IS massacre in 2014, according to international organizations. While many Yazidis such as Jardo escaped, either through smuggling or ransom, rights organizations say about 2,500 Yazidis, mostly women and children, remain under IS captivity in Syria and Iraq.

"We have coordinated with the immigration department, we will guard until she leaves for Australia," said Hadi Purnomo, police chief of the Balinese capital Denpasar. She is expected to fly out of Bali at around 10:00 pm (1400 GMT) and touch down in the city of Brisbane early Saturday. Corby was convicted in 2005. The end of her sentence was brought forward after she received several remissions for good behaviour, and a five-year cut following an appeal to clemency to the Indonesian president. Indonesia has stepped up its campaign against drug use since Corby was jailed. Two Australians were put to death alongside six other foreigners and one Indonesian in April 2015 for drug smuggling, sparking a serious diplomatic row between Jakarta and Canberra.

One of 11 suspected border crossers who were rescued from a desert area in Arizona has died at a hospital, federal authorities said Thursday. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said a 17-year-old resident of Mexico was found unconscious in Gila Bend and airlifted to a hospital along with two men who remain hospitalized. The gender and hometown of the teen who died Wednesday wasnt immediately released, and neither were the names of any of the other people rescued. Authorities said nine people from Mexico and two from Honduras were found suffering from excessive dehydration Tuesday in temperatures that reached 104 degrees. The surviving 10 people were in federal custody for immigration violations, according to border officials, who said one of the Hondurans is a man who has been turned over to Homeland Security Investigations and could face human smuggling charges resulting in death.
