UN call on Afghanistan's neighbours to keep borders open as crisis looms
The United Nations refugee agency called on Afghanistan's neighbours to keep borders open as Taliban insurgent advances heightened the country's crisis. "An inability to seek safety may risk innumerable civilian lives. UNHCR stands ready to help national authorities scale up humanitarian responses as needed," a spokesperson for the agency told a briefing in Geneva. Some 400,000 civilians have been forced from their homes since the beginning of the year, 250,000 of them since may, a U.N. official said. FRANCE 24's Sanam Shantyaei gives her analysis.
