600 displaced Afghans return after Taliban promises security
About 600 displaced Afghans returned to their villages in northern Badakhshan province from an Afghanistan-Tajikistan border area following the Taliban promise of their security.

The returnees who were displaced when the Taliban took over the capital Kabul in mid-August returned to their villages on Sunday.

Provincial governor, Maulvi Amanuddin Mansoor, said Monday that “They were living in a dire situation on an open ground but returned after provincial officials ensured their security.

“Efforts are underway to help all displaced people return to their villages at an early date in the mountainous region as winter is approaching,” the governor added.
