Another group of interpreters employed by Kiwi forces in Afghanistan are seeking asylum in New Zealand, saying their lives are at risk from the Taliban.

The five were ineligible for last year's resettlement deal, offered to 31 employees, because they quit before the December 2010 cut-off.

A spokesman for the defence minister said those who did not qualify for resettlement, but considered they had a case, could write to the immigration minister.
