Afghan translator’s pregnant wife lost her baby after brutal attack by Taliban thug with knuckleduster

The wife of a former Afghan interpreter told yesterday how a brutal Taliban gunman hunting her husband killed the baby she was carrying.

Sabir, who was three months pregnant, was punched in the stomach by a commander wearing a knuckleduster for refusing to reveal where her husband was.

The 26-year-old mother of two was attacked in front of her crying children. The insurgents showed her a picture of her husband, known as Chris during three years working for UK forces, and warned that her children would die if she did not give him up.
