UK Home Secretary Priti Patel has said the country would accept 20,000 Afghan refugees fleeing from the country over a 'long term' period under the new Afghan Citizens' Resettlement Scheme. It'll offer shelter primarily to women and girls who're "facing a chilling future" under Taliban's rule. The scheme includes providing refuge to 5,000 stranded Afghans in the first year alone.
