In this Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012, photo, an Afghan refugee girl walks toward other girls in an alley of a slum on the outskirts of Islamabad, Pakistan. Hundreds of thousands of Afghan refugees are in limbo as Pakistan, increasingly frustrated with hosting the world's largest and longest-running refugee population, weighs whether to renew their refugee status by the end of this year. A large-scale return of the 1.7 million Afghan refugees currently living in Pakistan would be a massive problem for Afghanistan at a time when it's already struggling to maintain security in the face of an American troop withdrawal. But Pakistan increasingly seems to be angry at a refugee population that many feel has overstayed its welcome. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen) less
