Two Afghan families killed on the border with Turkey and Bulgaria ..

By: Abdul Ghafoor

News have been circulating of two Afghan Families murdered by the human smugglers on the border with Turkey and Bulgaria. The reasons behind this mass murder of innocent Afghan migrants are unknown yet.


















The cousin to one the families has written on his Facebook updates ;

‘It is sad to to hear about the sudden death of my cousin Nematullah and his Family and Safar and his family on the border with Turkey and Bulgaria by the hand of the smugglers, May the victims rest in peace and Allah give patience to the families of both the victims’ 


The incident has happened at a time when dozens of Afghan men, women and children have been protesting in front of the UNHCR office in Ankara Turkey for the last one months, but yet they have not been heard. The protesters only demand was, that their cases must be considered by UNHCR and they should be a part of the resettlement. unfortunately even after one month of protest and huger strike, UNHCR and Afghan foreign ministry did not give any attention to the protesters, some families might have been compel to take those risky ways.




Imagine what would be your condition living in a limbo for years and years and yet the result is NO ! then the only option you have is to take those risky ways to reach a safer destination.
