Britain could have ‘blood on its hands’ over Afghan translators, Lord Dannatt warns

Britain will have “blood on its hands” if Afghan interpreters are killed by the Taliban, the former head of the army has warned

Lord Dannatt said that the nation has a “debt of honour” and a “moral obligation” towards those who served alongside British forces.

It comes amid mounting controversy over the government’s refusal to allow Afghan interpreters to return to Britain, including one who worked as a translator for David Cameron.
