More than 400,000 children will drop-out due to a high number of Afghan refugees coming back from Pakistan, according to Save the Children. More than 3.7 million are already out of school.
Being a child in Syria, Afghanistan or Somalia means living in one of the most dangerous countries in the world for kids, Save the Children has reported. Attacks on children in schools and hospitals are becoming normal.
An attack on the Save the Children's office in Afghanistan has ended killing two and wounding 20, in the latest violence to strike a foreign aid group in the country. So-called 'Islamic State' has claimed responsibility.
Ties have been strained between Afghanistan and Pakistan in recent months, with spiraling mutual distrust and antipathy proving a hindrance toward repairing a relationship critical for long-lasting peace in the region.
Pakistan has given millions of Afghan refugees in the country until the end of this month to return to their homeland. But refugees say the short deadline and no prospects for the future make their return difficult.
