Hundreds and thousands of Afghan citizens are returning home "with hope" from host countries like Pakistan and Iran, the UN special envoy for the country has said.

Tadamichi Yamamoto made the remarks on Monday as he briefed members of the Security Council on the situation in Afghanistan.

Many will face an uncertain future with a surge of attacks by Taliban insurgents, a volatile political situation and rampant poverty.
