‘Now we would trusting the US and UK, but now they left us’, says former refugee who survived Grenfell

Flora Neda and her husband, an Afghan army officer, fled the Taliban in 1996.

Two decades later he died in the Grenfell fire, after staying to help four women who took refuge in their top floor flat.

Now, Flora feels history is repeating itself: their families are once again trapped in Kabul fearing for their lives.

Two relatives worked for an American organisation but haven’t been able to get out.
