Local journalist attacked in Mazar-i-Sharif

A group of unidentified armed men attacked the residence of a local journalist in Mazar-e-Sharif, capital of Balkh province last night.

They intruded into the house of Yahya Jawahari and severely beaten him.

The intruders fled after damaging some stuff inside the house.

Motive behind the attack is unknown.

This comes as President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has issued orders to the security institutions to use every mean in protecting journalists.

The Ruling was issued after a Taliban suicide bombing claimed the lives of eight journalists in capital Kabul and later an armed attack took the life of another journalist in eastern Nangarhar province.

Haji Mohammad Zubair Khaksar who was working for the government-run Nangarhar Radio and Television network came under the attack of armed men while driving in his vehicle in Kharkarano Kala area of Surkh Road District on Friday night.
