The Afghan security forces have eliminated all four terrorists and ended a three-hour siege in TV station.
The governor of Nangarhar, Gulab Mangal in a press conference said, “among the dead were four RTA employees, including a driver, a guard, and two technical personnel.”
Seventeen civilians and seven members of the security forces were wounded, he added.
The Afghan Journalists Safety Committee condemned the attack and said it was a violation of the rules of war that protect media as civilians.
Wednesday’s attack underscores the growing dangers faced by news-media workers in Afghanistan as the security situation worsens.
