City of Baneh, Illegal border trade between Kurds in Iran and northern Iraq

epa02805733 An Iranian Kurdish owner of a shop talks on his mobile phone on 29 June 2011 in the city of Baneh, western Iran. Illegal border trade between Kurds in Iran and northern Iraq have drastically improved the economic situation in Baneh and other Kurdish cities. Baneh, which is very close to the Iraqi border, had for many years been considered by the Iranian government as one of the most deprived areas in the country. The Kurdish populated city in the Kurdistan province had almost been devastated by the regime of the late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein during the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war and nearby cities were even attacked by Iraqi chemical bombs. Baneh has become a shopping paradise for Iranians nationwide. EPA/ABEDIN TAHERKENAREH | Location: BANEH, Iran, Islamic Republic Of.
