Three female media workers shot dead in eastern Afghanistan

Three female media workers were shot dead in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad on Tuesday while heading home from work.


Local broadcaster Enikass TV said the women killed were its employees. Zalmai Latifi, director at the station, said they were gunned down in two separate attacks after leaving the network.


Two other people, apparently passersby, were wounded in the shootings.


Latifi said the three women were recent high school graduates aged between 18 and 20.


No group claimed responsibility for the attacks.
