KABUL: As many as 272 Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) have been helped return to their native provinces from the capital Kabul, an official from the Afghan Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation said Sunday.

Each family was given up to 200 U.S. dollars by the UNHCR while being sent back to their homes, according to the deputy minister.
“We are happy to return to our province as we see firm countrywide security,” Siddiq head of five-family members displaced from Afghanistan central Daikundi province, said.
Siddiq who lived in a rental house for one year in Kabul, said that he has now been going to his province and there he will resume work on agriculture and animal husbandry.
Mohammad Nasim, another person who left his home in Ghazni two years ago, also expressed happiness to return home, as here in Kabul, he faced lots of difficulties.
