Afghan refugees dissatisfied with living in hotels: We want to return home

Afghan refugees fleeing the Taliban have expressed dissatisfaction with the poor conditions they are facing in the UK.

Lack of housing has left many Afghan families stranded in hotels, and officials say this could continue for several months until suitable homes are found.

Boris Johnson launched Operation Warm Welcome in late August, but the Afghan resettlement program has seen that some refugees would prefer to return home.

The program was set for 7,000 Afghans to "rebuild their lives, find jobs, pursue education and integrate into local communities".

Now some of the refugees express that "they can no longer stand this".

A doctor told The Guardian: " I have had some patients tell me they want to go home.

A 67-year-old went on to say: " I can no longer stand this. I have to get out of this room (hotel).

While another added: 'I just want my freedom from the hotel.'
