A 5-year-old Afghan boy who became world famous earlier this year has fled his country because of safety concerns.

出于安全考虑,今年早些时候成为全球名人的一位5岁阿富汗男孩逃离了自己的国家。

A photograph of Murtaza Ahmadi first appeared on the Internet in January. He was wearing a homemade soccer jersey that looked like the one worn by Lionel Messi, the Argentinian soccer star.

一月份,穆尔塔扎·艾哈迈迪(Murtaza Ahmadi)的一张照片首次出现在互联网上。他穿着一件自制的球衣,看上去就像是阿根廷足球明星梅西所穿的球衣。

The boy’s brother made the shirt from a blue-and-white striped plastic bag. The bag had the name “Messi” and number 10 written on the back.

这个男孩的哥哥用一个蓝白条纹的塑料袋制作了这件球衣,塑料袋球衣的背面写着梅西的名字和10号。

The photograph spread quickly on the Internet. Eventually, Messi himself heard about the boy and sent him a soccer ball and signed jerseys.

这张照片在互联网上迅速传播开来。最终,梅西本人听说了这个男孩,并送给他一个足球和签名球衣。

The story seemed to have a happy ending.

这个故事似乎有了一个圆满的结局。

But after the news spread, the Ahmadi family started receiving threatening telephone calls and even a letter from the Taliban.

但是消息传开之后,艾哈迈迪家庭开始接到恐吓电话甚至是来自塔利班组织的一封信件。

The Associated Press says the Taliban have yet to comment on the boy’s case.

美联社称塔利班组织尚未就这个男孩的案例发表看法。

Murtaza's father said that at first he was not sure who was responsible for all the phone calls. At first, he thought it might have been criminals who falsely thought the family made a lot of money from the boy’s fame.

穆尔塔扎的父亲表示,起初他不知道谁该对这所有的电话负责。他最初觉得这可能是不法分子误认为这家人从该男孩的名气中赚到了很多钱。

About one month ago, the family of eight quietly fled to Pakistan. They left behind all of their belongings. They are currently living in a one-room house in the city of Quetta.

大约一个月前,这一家8人悄悄地逃到了巴基斯坦。他们留下了所有财物。目前他们居住在奎达市的一所一居室房子里。

But Murtaza Ahmadi has not given up on soccer. Some days, the boy goes to a nearby field to play a game with his family.

但是穆尔塔扎并没有放弃足球。有时候他会到附近运动场和家人一起踢场比赛。

His father adds that Murtaza still hopes that one day he will be able to meet his hero, Lionel Messi.

他的父亲补充说,穆尔塔扎还是希望有一天能够见到他的偶像梅西。
