Pakistani media reports that between April 3rd and 13th, at least 8,581 Afghan refugees have been expelled from the country.

SAMAA TV reported on Sunday, April 14th, that the trend of expelling “illegal” immigrants is rapidly continuing.

The report indicates that 3,127 men, 1,972 women, and 3,482 children, including newly expelled refugees, are among those deported from Pakistan.

According to reports, since the start of the expulsion process, 535,940 Afghan refugees have been returned to their country.

This comes as Pakistan has announced the start of the second phase of the expulsion process despite international reactions calling for a halt to the deportation of refugees.

The media also notes that 310 Afghan families have been returned to Afghanistan with 287 vehicles.

According to The Guardian, the second phase of expelling Afghan refugees from Pakistan began on Monday, April 15th, with at least 400,000 refugees set to be expelled.
