Afghan refugees return home

Many who fled to Pakistan are now returning as UN programme that helped them nears end.

    Over past decades, millions of Afghans have fled to Pakistan to escape conflict.

    Many of them have already been repatriated, but for those still in Pakistan, time is running out.

    Next year sees the end of a UN program which helps them return home by offering financial assistance and cutting red tape. That is why many are choosing to make the move and return to their homeland now.
