Stranded in Greece, Afghan Interpreters Feel Abandoned By US, Coalition

  • Henry Ridgwell

Among the tens of thousands of refugees stranded in Greece are many Afghan nationals -- including some who tell VOA they were forced to flee threats from the Taliban because they had worked with US and coalition forces. The United States has a special visa to help Afghans and Iraqis who worked with the US military to gain asylum -- but the refugees say the system takes far too long, and they had to flee for their lives. Henry Ridgwell reports from Athens.
