Deported Afghan migrant: Journey to Europe's border 'big mistake'

One returnee tells Al Jazeera that the young Afghans who are trying to go to Turkey 'are committing a big mistake' because 'they don't understand the pain of going through illegal routes'.

    Human rights groups are criticising Turkey over the deportation of 3,000 Afghan migrants.

    They say it is putting refugees lives at risk by sending them back to a war-torn country.

    One returnee said making that journey from Afghanistan to Europe's border was a mistake he wished he had never made.

    Al Jazeera's Hannah Hoexter reports.
