Milan: The first of nearly 300 Afghan refugees arrived in Rome on Monday along a new humanitarian corridor organized by the Italian government and civil society, charities and international organisations, Italy’s foreign ministry announced.

The ministry said the humanitarian corridor is intended to “give a future prospect in dignity and security to additional refugees and persecuted Afghans” following the US withdrawal and control by the Taliban last August.
