Three female media workers shot dead in Afghanistan

JALALABAD (HRNW) – Three female media workers have been shot and killed in Afghanistan, their TV network said, in what appeared to be the latest targeted killing to rock the country.

Journalists, religious scholars, activists and judges have all been victims of a recent wave of political assassinations, forcing many into hiding — with some fleeing the country.

The killings have increased since peace talks began last year between the Afghan government and the Taliban.

Tuesday s murders came in two separate attacks in the eastern city of Jalalabad, said Zalmai Latifi, the director of Enikass TV, where the three women worked.

“They were going home from the office on foot when they were shot,” Latifi told AFP, saying all three worked in the dubbing department for the broadcaster.
