KABUL, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- A group of 18 Afghan nationals whose application for asylum in Germany have been rejected arrived in Afghan capital Kabul on Thursday.
"After spending 12,000 U.S. dollars to human traffickers and traveling through difficult ways, I reached Germany five years ago and begun new life in a peaceful environment. But suddenly police arrested me from my work place in a hotel and sent me back to Afghanistan," Mohammad Naeem, 25, told Xinhua at the Kabul airport.
"I have no place to live here in Afghanistan and I would go back to Germany, come what may," said Naeem, who is from the northern and restive Saripul province.
Another deported Afghan, Sayed Wafa, 52, also complained that German government had deported him after 16 years of living in Germany.
More than 250,000 Afghans, reportedly have fled their country with the hope for settling in developed and peaceful countries, mostly in Germany, over the past three years.
