Title edit

"46 suffocated Afghanistan victims return home" makes me think these people are now zombies. Could a less...awkward title be considered? --Resplendent (talk) 23:34, 7 April 2009 (UTC)Reply

Agreed, but this is a tricky one. The titles that the sources use also raise questions, but overall I think they are better. --SVTCobra 23:41, 7 April 2009 (UTC)Reply
I see what you mean about the zombies, not so good. Changed title above, if longer titles are ok, then it could still read...
  • 46 illegal Afghan immigrants suffocate in truck in Pakistan; bodies returned home
  • Bodies of 46 Afghan illegal immigrants returned home.
  • Bodies returned home to Afghanistan after Pakistan container truck tragedy
  • Bodies of Afghanistan illegal immigrants who tragically suffocated in Pakistan returned home.

Article is misleading edit

According to reports, each person paid 30,000 rupees (about $30) [1] but the article here states $4,000 to $8,000. That's a very huge difference. Afghans don't need to pay a penny to visit Pakistan, 3 months visa is free vice versa.--Afghan King (talk) 20:53, 18 March 2013 (UTC)Reply

This appears to be some sort of implicit proposal for a correction, so I'm tagging it as such. --Pi zero (talk) 22:36, 18 March 2013 (UTC)Reply


  Done — The article was incorrect, but 30000 Rs is more like 400 dollars, not 30. Note that one source does indeed claim that 4 to 8 thousand was paid per person. That is incorrect. They probably meant that 4000 to 8000 was paid total. — Gopher65talk 02:20, 2 November 2013 (UTC)Reply
