PAKISTAN-AFGHANISTAN-UNHCR-REFUGEES-POLITICS

In this photograph taken on September 7, 2016, Afghan refugees wait to register at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) repatriation centre on the outskirts of Peshawar, as they prepare to return to their home country after fleeing civil war and Taliban rule. Pakistan has provided safe haven for decades for millions like Mohammad Anwar, who fled Afghanistan along with his parents and other family members when he was just seven years old, after the Soviet invasion of 1979. But as war against the Soviets morphed into civil war, Taliban rule, the US invasion and the grinding conflict against insurgents in Afghanistan today, even Pakistan's famed hospitality has run out. / AFP PHOTO / A MAJEED / TO GO WITH Pakistan-Afghanistan-UNHCR-refugees-politics,FOCUS by Sajjad Tarakzai with Anne Chaon
