In Afghanistan, a local TV journalist was shot dead in Khost province yesterday. The killing comes less than a week after another journalist in the southern Helmand province was wounded by a bomb attached to his car.
 
Police officer said that Sultan Mahmoud Khirkhowa, a journalist with the local Zhman TV and radio was killed by two men on a motorcycle. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack. Both the Taliban and the Islamic State group are active in the area.

IS has targeted journalists in the past and publicly threatened to kill them. Last year 17 journalists and media workers were killed in Afghanistan.
