HRW Reports Iran Expelling Afghani Refugees

The human rights organization, Human Rights Watch (HRW) reports that the Iranian regime is expelling Afghani refugees who have been fleeing their war-torn country to seek refuge in Iran.

The organization claims, according to a recently published report, that Teheran arrests, harasses, and then returns the refugees back to Afghanistan without hearing their requests for asylum.

According to HRW, Teheran is putting them right back into the hostile, life-threatening war zone.
