Afghan interpreters: 'They told me they would shoot me'

Many of the interpreters who worked with US forces in Afghanistan are being hunted down by the Taliban, the BBC has been told.

Thousands have emigrated to the US, but others have been refused a visa, and say they are now in grave danger.

Nader, a former interpreter with US Special Forces lost his job after an argument with his American commander.

A year ago the Taliban came to his home, dragged him to the village graveyard and shot him in an attempted execution.

Nader took the BBC's Thomas Martienssen back to his family's village where the Taliban caught him.
