In December 2014 NATO troops will withdraw from Herat and other bases around Afghanistan after a ten years mission. Interpreters who worked alongside NATO forces now feel that they are in danger and receive death threats from the Taliban. They risked their lives for 10 years alongside NATO troops, and now some are beginning to feel that they are being abandoned.
