Afghan refugee girl

In this Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2017 photo, an Afghan refugee girl waits with family members for their turn to register as refugees, outside the government registration office, in Peshawar, Pakistan.

Rights group says Pakistan is forcing refugees home to an uncertain future and war, while the U.N. refugee agency is complicit, giving them money to return and adding to the pressure to leave the relative safety of Pakistan.

Dismissing the criticism, Pakistan says it still hosts the world’s largest long-term refugee population and cites security worries and economic woes as reasons for wanting fewer refugees on its soil.
