Kiwis Offers to Resettle Afghan Interpreters

Could be targeted by the Taliban when troops leave


New Zealand says it has offered to resettle 23 Afghan interpreters and their families who fear being targeted by the Taliban after troops leave.

Most of New Zealand's troops are based in central Bamiyan province and are due to withdraw in 2013.

Bamiyan was seen as a relatively secure region, but some translators reportedly received threats from the Taliban.
