Farewell Kabul – Viewfinder | Al Jazeera

By the end of 2014, only 9,800 US troops will remain in Afghanistan, which is causing widespread concerns about the country’s stability.

For two years, Zekria has been desperately trying to find a way out of his home city, Kabul. He has been working for an international agency and is afraid of what will happen to him after the foreign troops depart.
