The kolbars, literally in Kurdish "those who carry on their backs", risk their lives crossing the border into Iran, smuggling in illegal TVs and other products. It's a dangerous job; they risk dying of cold, stepping on a mine, or being shot at by border guards. In 2020, 61 kolbars were killed, while 181 others were injured, maimed or tortured.
