KABUL: An IED hit a vehicle of private Khurshid TV channel in PD4 of Kabul city, killing at least one journalist and a driver.
6 people were wounded in the attack.
Khurshid TV’s economic reporter Zamir Amiri and technical staff member Shafiq were killed in the blast, according to the media.
Rafi Sediqqi, the editor-in-chief of Khurshid TV, said that six staff members of the channel were wounded in the blast and two are in serious condition.
Those wounded in the blast were transferred to Kabul’s Emergency Hospital.
Sediqqi said that no group or individual has threatened the TV channel recently, but stated that in the past terrorists have targeted Afghan media.
“Such attacks will not demoralize Afghan journalists and media outlets from reporting the news,” said Sediqqi.
Last year in August, a magnetic IED blast targeted a bus carrying the employees of Khurshid TV in the fifth street of Taimani in Kabul’s Police District 4.
