Afghan military interpreters seek US refuge

US government criticised for not granting enough visas to Afghans who helped troops on the battlefield.

    Some former US soldiers who were helped by Afghans on the battlefield are complaining that too few of their interpreters have been granted refugee visas to the US.

    Former US Army captain Erik Malmstrom says his interpreter Khalilulah was key to his soldiers' understanding of the Afghan people, and he is now guiding him through the application process.
