JALALABAD: Gunmen attacked a national television and radio station in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad on Wednesday, an official said.
“We have reports of an attack on RTA [Radio Television Afghanistan]. A gunfight is going on inside the building,” government spokesman Attaullah Khogyani told AFP.
Last month, Taliban attackers disguised in military uniforms killed 140 Afghan soldiers in what would be the deadliest attack ever on an Afghan military base, officials said. The Afghan defence ministry said the toll of dead and/or injured was “over 100”. Another official in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, where the attack happened, confirmed on Saturday at least 140 soldiers were killed and many others wounded.
