BASHMAKH, IRAQ:  An Iranian Kurdish smuggler prepares to load alcohol onto his horses to take into Iran...Iranian Kurdish smugglers traffic petrol from Iran into Iraq and alcohol from Iraq into Iran.  On foot, a smuggler can look to make around $10 per trip whereas with a horse a smuggler can make $100.  The routes are very dangerous with the risk of stepping on land mines or  being shot by the Iranian military..Photo by Kamaran Najm/Metrography
