Afghan refugee boys read Islam's holy book, the Koran, during a religion class 18 October 2001 at the Kholafa-e-Rashedin mosque in the refugee camp of the Niatak, some three kms from the border with Afghanistan, near Iran's southeasten city of Zabol. The Taliban, with which Tehran has hostile relations, have opposed Iran's plan to build camps on Afghan soil for refugees from the US-Afghan conflict, according to Iran's Red Crescent chief. Iran hosts 2.5 million refugees from Afghanistan and of whom about 5,000 live in the Niatak camp, receiving food from Iranian and foreign relief agencies.
