Afghan refugees describe treacherous journeys to Turkey

Turkey is experiencing a new influx of migrants, this time from Afghanistan instead of Syria.

More than 20,000 Afghans have tried to illegally enter Turkey via Iran over the past three months, adding to the 150,000 already there. And now, Turkey has stepped up efforts to send them back home.

Al Jazeera’s Sinem Koseoglu reports from eastern Turkey, where he heard stories about their treacherous journeys in search of a better life.
