Afghans face uncertain future in wary Europe

Continent wants to send back refugees from Afghanistan as they are viewed as "economic migrants".

    Thousands of refugees are making their way to Europe and not all of them are Syrian.

    Some are from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

    There is a push to send them back to their home countries because they are viewed as "economic migrants". This makes their future uncertain.

    Most refugees on the move are Syrians, but an estimated 25 percent of those entering Austria are from Afghanistan.

    There are many nationalities helping each other, but some express resentment over who is most deserving of help.

    Robin Forestier-Walker reports from the Austria-Slovenia border on the challenges refugees face as European countries tighten asylum rules.
