Scarier than war: One Afghan man's journey to the island of Lesvos

From the island of Lesvos in Greece, journalist Stefan Schmid speaks to one man from Afghanistan who, now separated from his family, feels he has been let down by the West

"For 13 years, thousands of Afghans have worked alongside our troops and our diplomats, often at great personal risk and many have even lost their lives. I came into the State Department determined to keep our promises to these brave men and women." (John Kerry, US secretary of state, 2014)
