Afghan interpreters arrive in US
Afghan interpreters and their families have arrived in the US — the first of a group of 2,500 Afghans being evacuated as the Taliban advances in Afghanistan. The interpreters are being resettled under a visa programme for those who worked with the US during the recently ended 20-year war with the Taliban.
Also in the programme: China is facing a significant new outbreak of coronavirus cases and a court has ruled the daughter of Angola’s former president must give up oil and gas shares worth half a billion dollars.
