Taliban death squads are ramping up the hunt for Afghans and others who they believe collaborated with the United States or the recently deposed Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, according to a group that assists Afghan interpreters caught up in the mayhem.

The Australian non-profit Forsaken Fighters said “tens of thousands” could potentially be at risk.

“Interpreters on the ground in Kandahar have reported that the Taliban have been actively seeking out interpreters who supported coalition forces, even using local kids to help in pointing out people and going door to door to find them,” the organization told The Sun.

“People are being dragged from their houses and executed. It is a truly horrific situation. The sheer desperation of those people that assisted us is overwhelming.”

A family member of a journalist from the German broadcaster Deutsche Welle was shot dead by the Taliban, the broadcaster confirmed, adding that other staff in the country have had their homes raided, Reuters reported.

The Taliban has created “priority lists” of alleged collaborators to hunt down in the effort and have been making “targeted door-to-door visits” according to a leaked United Nations document viewed by Agence France-Presse.

Since their blitzkrieg conquest this week, the Taliban has moved swiftly to consolidate their gains and tighten their grip on the population.

Video circulating online shows white clad, heavily armed Taliban fighters marching in a show of force through the city of Qalat.
