Talking with some Marjah residents-turned-refugees

As ISAF and Afghan forces are about to launch a large operation in Helmand province, thousands of people are fleeing the area. We met some  refugees who chose dire conditions in a make-shift refugee camp rather than stay and wait for the fighting to begin. ISAF is urging Afghans not to leave their villages, but many say they have already become victims of the violence.
