Reports from Pakistan claim that anti-Taliban groups are being reinforced by Iran which is pressurising the Afghan refugees in Iran to get their young men ready for war, or face expulsion.

The refugee fighters are being sent to Bamian and Shiber airport for onward deployment to war fronts. 1,200 such reinforcements are said to have arrived in Bamian.
