Faisal* was a local journalist in Kabul, reporting on the horrors perpetrated by the Taliban and ISIS, working for Western media outlets and assisting with news gathering in his native Afghanistan. Until the West walked West leaving him and many others to the fate of the Taliban, and now once again, ISIS. He and his wife and two tiny children are in hiding on the outskirts of Kabul, praying that they do not get the fateful tap at the door. They have applied to live in the UK, France and Germany but appear to be abandoned to a grim fate. I tell their story here, on the Association of European Journalists website.
