Both men were killed in a US airstrike on Friday, an attack that's caused soaring tension between Washington and Tehran.

So this really does add to this sense of ghostliness. It's a very sinister feel in this part of the country. Many of the towns are very empty because people have left the scorch land, is a very unnerving for the people still here.
