    0

    LONDON: Winston Churchill’s great-grandson, Alexander Perkins, on Wednesday delivered a petition with more than 70,000 signatures to Prime Minister David Cameron’s office, demanding action to protect Afghan interpreters who have served with British troops. Some 600 Afghan interpreters who served on the frontline with British forces are being offered UK visas under a relocation package announced in May, while around 600 others will qualify for training or education in Afghanistan as well as payment for up to five years.
