Yama Siawash, a prominent Afghan journalist and civil society activist, was killed in a terrorist attack on a car carrying him with his two colleagues in this morning.
Over the past week, Afghanistan has witnessed the deadliest attacks in which dozens of Afghans have lost their lives. The Taliban have been active in most of these attacks, and the Afghan government has so far had no practical plan to prevent the killing of civilians other than to condemn them.
Targeting journalists is a gross violation of human rights and is considered a crime against humanity. Belgian Independent Global Human Rights Organization strongly condemns today’s attack and calls on the Afghan government to identify the perpetrators and prosecute them as soon as possible.
