A man, 43, of Indian nationality who has lived in Japan since 2016 while leaving his wife and daughter in Afghanistan, is seen in this image taken in Bando, Ibaraki Prefecture, on Oct. 4, 2021. The man says he had hired a tutor to teach his 13-year-old daughter at home, but the tutor stopped showing up after the Taliban took control of the country. His daughter wants to become a midwife, and she says she wants to study in Japan. The man says his family has been asking him to take them to Japan out of fear for the Taliban.
