An Afghan journalist-turned-spokesman for the country’s public protection force was killed along with two colleagues on Sunday by a bomb targeting their vehicle, the interior ministry said.
The murder of Zia Wadan, who previously worked for several media networks in Afghanistan, appeared to be the latest in a series of targeted killings that have rocked Afghanistan, especially Kabul. Wadan and his colleagues were killed in morning rush-hour traffic in an eastern part of the capital, ministry spokesman Tariq Arian told reporters. “A vehicle carrying Zia Wadan was targeted with an IED… as a result Wadan and two of his colleagues were killed,” Arian said. —AFP
