Borders to remain shut for refugees: Musharraf

President Pervez Musharraf on Saturday insisted that Pakistan would not open its border for refugees from Afghanistan even as 1,000 Pakistan tribesmen crossed into the other side to fight the United States.

Musharraf, however, announced a package of measures in a bid to keep Afghan refugees in their own country.

He said Pakistan would set up new camps and medical centres in Afghanistan and deliver fresh food aid to the starving people.

Meanwhile, a third batch of 1,000 armed Pakistani Pashtoon volunteers crossed into Afghanistan join the Taleban.

"A group of 1,000 volunteers left for Afghanistan in 40 vehicles," Mohammad Ismail, a local leader of the Tehreek Nifaz-e-Shariat Mohammadi, told a new agency.

"Another group of the same size will proceed to Kunar on Sunday," Ismail said.
