Afghanistan: Former military interpreters live in fear of return to Taliban government

As the Taliban gain ground across Afghanistan, Afghans who have worked as interpreters for foreign armies live in fear of reprisals. They are considered traitors by the Taliban and beg Western countries to grant them visas so they can flee the country. Although the Taliban say no harm will be done to former interpreters who repent, Afghans who have worked for foreign troops find it hard to believe this promise. Some of them agreed to speak anonymously with FRANCE 24.
