The Chief Executives’ Statement on Attack on Tolo News Crews (January20, 2016)

I learned with great sorrow and sadness that once again a suicide attack by terrorists, the sworn enemies of Islam and humanity, on Tolo TV and Kabura Production Company, subset of Moby Group killed six people and injured more than 27.

The attack on media staff who works honestly and impartially in difficult conditions to inform the public, unveiled the true nature of the Taliban and the brutal terrorists who do not believe in any religious value.

While expressing my condolences to the victims’ families and the people of Afghanistan, I condemn this criminal and inhuman act of the terrorists in the strongest terms possible.

I direct the security forces to ensure security of all journalists and media and diligently examine the incident and deal with the perpetrators of this crime seriously.
