Since the start of a new repatriation season almost one month ago, some 10,000 Afghans have returned to their homeland from neighboring Pakistan, the United Nation refugee agency reported March 31. Salvatore Lombardo, Country Representative for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Afghanistan, told journalists in Kabul that the majority of the returns are to the eastern part of the country, with some 50 to 60 percent of the latest group going to Nangarhar, Kunar and Laghman provinces.
