more Afghans arrested in PakistanThe Pakistani police forces have arrested at least 70 Afghan nationals as part of the ongoing operations which were launched following a deadly attack on an army-run school in mid-December last year.

According to the local media reports the Afghan nationals were held for illegally residing in the country.

The reports further added that the Afghan nationals were among 565 suspects arrested during house searches and snap checking at checkpoints.

This comes as at least 935 Afghan nationals were arrested by police in Punjab province of Pakistan over the past one month, according to local media reports.

The Afghan nationals were reportedly arrested for illegally residing in Gujranwala, Bahawalpur, Multan, Faisalabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore and DG Khan parts of Punjab province.

The decision to expel Afghan refugees was taken following a deadly attack on an army-run school in Peshawar city of Pakistan.

Over 130 school children were massacred following an attack at the Army Public School on 16th December on Warsak Road in Peshawar.

The federal government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa set a deadline for the expulsion of Afghan refugees on 20th December last year.
