A Belgian couple has gone missing outside the historical town of Bam in southeastern Iran, a local governor said Monday. The region is known for drug smuggling and has a history of kidnappings of Western tourists. "Two Belgian tourists, a husband and wife, who traveled to Bam to visit historical sites went missing Sunday in the Fahraj district," Bam governor Majid Etemadi told the state IRNA news agency. Etemadi said the couple, 27 and 30 years old, were traveling in a private car. Police were investigating.
