AFGHANISTAN: Marines patrolling province on Iranian border

Marines are mentoring Afghan forces in Farah province on Afghanistan's western border with Iran in hopes of providing a greater sense of security to nomadic tribes.

Some tribes are already moving back into the area, where bands of Taliban fighters have been known to terrorize locals, Marines say.
