Photo journal: Life in a tribal Balochi settlement
New Kahan

New Kahan is a settlement outside of Quetta city in Pakistan's restive Balochistan province. It is home to the Marri tribal people who initially fled Pakistan for Afghanistan in the 1970s after a war with government forces.

When the Taleban came to power in the mid-1990s, they returned to Pakistan and finally settled near Quetta naming New Kahan after their original homeland in the remote eastern part of Balochistan.

A student from Quetta, who prefers to remain anonymous, visited New Kahan and sent these pictures.
