Life as a war widow in Afghanistan - Marzia's story

Nato troops are due to pull out of Afghanistan this year, after 13 years in the country. An estimated 13,000 men in the Afghan National Security Force and 453 British soldiers have died in the conflict.

Afghan war widow Marzia describes the challenges of bringing up two children alone after the death of her husband, who was an Afghan soldier.

The interview is one of several conducted by Afghan journalist Zarghuna Kargar, who spoke to British and Afghan war widows.
