A group of Iraqis arranges a great number of used shells of artillery ammunitions, picked up by all the battle fields of Iraq, to be loaded in a truck, and transported to Iran to be recycled. Each truck transports about 13 tons in the value of 431 USD for ton and the Iranian authorities collect 145 USD for ton of border rates. Sometimes, the Iraqi drivers wait about one week on the Iraqi side of the border with Iran for an authorization entrance, Chamchamal, Iraq, 2003/05/27. (image by Luis Costa)
