Announcement about the Taliban Attack on a Local Radio Station in Khost Province

 

The Afghanistan Journalists Support Organization (AJSO) expresses its concern over the attack by the Taliban forces on Nan FM Radio in Khost province today and considers this step to be against all standards and principles of freedom of expression.

According to the reports, the Taliban’s local police forces entered the FM Radio building, threatened the journalists, and confiscated their phones.

The Taliban states that they carried out this based on a legitimate claim. If there is a legal problem, it should be resolved through the Media Violations Commission. The decision by the Taliban’s “field court” in this regard is another clear violation of press freedom.

AJSO once again asks the Taliban to stop media censorship and attacks on them.
