A friend of the Afghan resistance group leader battling the Taliban has called for international humanitarian aid and military support for the group.
Kamal Alam maintains a close relationship with Ahmad Massoud, who took on the fight against the Taliban after his father was assassinated by al-Qaeda 20 years ago.
Small pockets of Afghanistan remain outside of Taliban control, but Mr Alam says his friend is "the only person" stopping terror organisations from thriving in Afghanistan.
If you or someone you know needs support at this time, you can find more information by visiting the British Army website and the Government's website.
