An Afghan woman made famous by a National Geographic cover in 1985 has been deported from Pakistan after she was convicted of having fake ID papers.

Sharbat Gula had served a 15-day prison sentence in hospital where she was treated for hepatitis C.

She and her four children were handed over at the border. She later met President Ashraf Ghani in Kabul.

Gula, who is remembered for her haunting green eyes, fled Soviet-occupied Afghanistan as a child.

She and millions of other Afghans sought refuge in neighbouring Pakistan and Iran.
