CHAMAN: The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) on Wednesday has said that the closure of Pak-Afghan border in Chaman has resulted in suspension of the repatriation of Afghan refugees.
UNHCR spokesperson said that the voluntary return of Afghan refugees was halted on May 05 after Afghan forces resorted to aggression against Pakistan which left at least 11 civilians dead and scores injured.
The spokesperson added that 3,200 Afghan refugee families have returned to their native country since the repatriation was initiated on April 03, 2016.
