Thousands of Afghan migrants walk into Turkey for a better life

Tens of thousand of civilians have been killed in the war on terror in Afghanistan since 2001. The situation in the country has worsened in those years - with all sides sharing the blame. A government airstrike this month in Kunduz killed dozens of people, including children. The bloodshed has led to an exodus of mostly young men trying to flee the violence. More than a million remain stranded in Europe, Iran, Pakistan and Turkey. Some are now being deported back to the country they fled as Omar Kablan reports.
