Shock In Afghanistan As Three Female TV Workers Gunned Down
Three young women working for a TV station in the Afghan city of Jalalabad have been shot dead. Islamic State militants claimed responsibility, but the local police chief says an arrested suspect was a Taliban member. In December, a female journalist from the same TV station was also killed. There has been a wave of attacks blamed on the Taliban targeting government workers, journalists, rights activists, moderate religious leaders, and women in public roles.
