Interpreters and other Afghans who worked for the US government over the last 20 years said they are facing ' increasing threats' against their lives as foreign forces are moving out of the country.

Some of them said they do not know when they will be able to move out of the nation despite promises made by certain Western countries.

The United States, Canada and some other countries have vowed to evacuate Afghans who worked with them during the last 20 years, reports Tolo News.

Another young man, who is a resident of Shakar Dara district in Kabul province, told the news portal that he has left his home due to threats and is living in Kabul city.

“My family is in Shakar Dara district but I cannot go to the district. I live here and I have rented a room,” said Massoud, an Afghan who worked with US forces in Kabul.

Meanwhile, some Afghans who worked with the UK government gathered in Kabul and said they want to secure safety for themselves.

“We worked with them and now we are left on our own,” Asadullah, a former employee of the UK embassy in Kabul, told Tolo News.
