Over 325,000 Afghan Refugees Returned in Past Four Months: Reports

More 325,000 Afghan refugees have returned back home over the past four months said the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation. Over 1,500 refugees are returning daily from Iran while a total of 55,000 have returned from Pakistan.

The refugees coming in from Iran are travelling through the Herat and Nimroz borders. Iran is one of the worst-hit Coronavirus affected countries and fears of contracting the disease has led to the exodus. Pakistan too has been badly affected by the virus.

Complete lockdowns also mean no jobs – legally or illegally – forcing the refugees to return back.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan’s total Coronavirus cases rose to 11,831 yesterday.
