For decades it was known as the largest Afghan refugee village in Pakistan, until it was closed last summer and the mud-brick homes torn down. Half a year later the same site is littered with tents housing another displaced population - Pakistanis uprooted within their own country. Just as Jalozai had provided a safe haven for more than 100,000 Afghan refugees fleeing conflict in their homeland over the years, it is now home to over 11,000 internally displaced people (IDP) who recently escaped the fighting in the tribal areas bordering Afghanistan. An average of 100 additional families are being accommodated every day.
