‘Taliban don’t respect humanity’ say evacuees arriving in UAE

Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “‘Taliban don’t respect humanity’ say evacuees arriving in UAE” – below is their description.

Bakhtiar Shoresh realised the Taliban were coming for him when he received ‘a signal’ three months ago. Chillingly, the ‘signal’ was the bullet-riddled body of a young man dumped at midnight on the doorstep of his home in a quiet Kabul suburb. Over the previous 20 years, Bakhtiar, 46, worked as an interpreter for The Mail on Sunday and many other Western media organisations. British security companies in Afghanistan also benefited from his expertise and before beginning a Masters degree in Business Administration last year, he was the Kabul representative of a UAE company manufacturing armoured vehicles. If, as widely believed, the Taliban have a hit list, he was surely on it – and more than likely, he adds with a mordant laugh, nearer the top than the bottom. Today Bakhtiar, his wife Qudsia and their children, aged between two and 14, (main) are safe in Britain, quarantining in a hotel near Heathrow after a dramatic escape. It followed a desperate appeal for help to this newspaper and months of negotiations. Inset: Bakhtiar with Mail on Sunday reporter Barbara Jones at Kabul airport in 2002
