Afghans face uncertainty in new year

Many people have lost jobs they once held with the international community and now struggle to find work daily.

    For the people of Afghanistan, 2014 is expected to be a landmark year. Foreign forces are due to withdraw and a presidential election is set to take place. But the Taliban remain a threat and so do economic uncertainty and high unemployment.

    Afghans living in Taliban-controlled areas say they have to join either side of the fighting to be guaranteed a reliable paycheque.
