Afghan refugees in Pakistan fear deportation

More than 1.6 million people who fled Afghan conflict have been given a June 30 deadline to leave Pakistan.

    The clock is ticking for Afghan refugees living in Pakistan, as they face a June 30 deadline to leave.

    Pakistan says it will not forcefully send back the 1.6 million registered Afghan refugees living within its borders at the end of this month.

    But with no word from Islamabad on whether it will renew their status, many refugees – most who have called Pakistan home for decades – remain concerned about their future.
