Afghan exiles in Tajikistan hope escape will bring a better future


Afghan doctor Abdulbashir Yusufi says he cannot contemplate a return home with his family. Having fled the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif, the 43-year-old was able to secure a last-minute visa for himself and his immediate family for Tajikistan and fly out of Kabul just as the Taliban reached the city's gates last month.

Every day the 44-year-old descends into the city's sewers, braving toxic gases emitted by excrement, pollutants and other waste, to manually unblock the drains of the city.
