"We are worried there not only could be a refugee crisis," says Imran Khan.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Tuesday that millions of Muslims could flee India due to the curfew in Kashmir and India's new citizenship law, creating "a refugee crisis that would dwarf other crises".

Imran Khan, addressing the Global Forum on Refugees in Geneva, said: "We are worried there not only could be a refugee crisis, we are worried it could lead to a conflict between two nuclear-armed countries."

"Our country will not be able to accommmodate more refugees," he added, urging the world to "step in now".
