Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, in an unprecedented announcement Sunday, pledged to offer Pakistani citizenship to hundreds of thousands of Afghans born to refugee families his country has been hosting for decades.

Responding to a question on incidents of infiltration at the border after the change of government in Pakistan, he said, "Did you all expect a change?" I don't know.
