Afghans' return route paved with danger

Second part of series following Khan family as it heads home from exile in Pakistani city of Peshawar.

    When the former Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979, Afghan refugees began pouring into neighbouring Pakistan. Three decades later, the Pakistani government is encouraging those refugees to return home.

    That journey can be very dangerous, however.

    As part of the Afghan Challenges series, Al Jazeera has been following the Khan family. Imtiaz Tyab reports from the Torkham border crossing between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
