TEHRAN, May 13, 2007 — Iran says it has expelled 85,000 illegal Afghan refugees in the past three weeks.

The announcement by Deputy Interior Minister Mohammad Baqer Zolghadr comes a day after Afghan lawmakers voted to sack Foreign Minister Rangin Dadfar Spanta over his alleged mishandling of Iran’s forced return to Afghanistan of thousands of refugees. President Hamid Karzai is keeping Spanta in the job until a Supreme Court ruling.
