A volunteer helping to resettle Afghan refugees in Scotland is facing calls to be deported for being a vocal Taliban supporter.

Waheed Totakhyl, who says his brother is a military commander for the Taliban in east Kabul, has told Sky News that since the group captured Afghanistan, the country is "safer than Europe".

Newly-arrived refugees in Glasgow, including one interpreter who worked for the British Army in Afghanistan, have called for the government to deport him.
