The first set of Afghan translators and interpreters who helped US soldiers and diplomats in Afghanistan during the 20-year war between the US and terrorist groups arrived in the US on Friday July 30.



The move comes as the Joe Biden administration fears the interpreters might be killed by the Taliban as revenge for helping US troops in the 20-year war against terrorist groups.
