Repatriation of Afghan refugee in Pakistan resumes.

Repatriation of Afghan refugees from Pakistan started on Monday at a time when the UN refugee agency has slashed cash grants for the refugees who opts for voluntary repatriation.

The repatriation was delayed for a month due the closure of the border in February.

Pakistan closed all crossing points due to security concerns after a series of "terrorist" attacks killed 100 people and injured many more.

An Afghan-based Pakistani armed group claimed responsibility for the attacks, which included a massacre of devotees at the Shabaz Qalandar shrine in Sindh.

We are joined from Kabul by Sarah Craggs, the senior programme coordinator for the International Organisation for Migration in Afghanistan, to discuss the latest updates.
