Suicide Bombers Storm TV Station in Afghanistan

Suicide bombers stormed the state TV station in the eastern Afghan city of Jalalabad on Wednesday, triggering clashes that killed at least two people.
The attack was claimed by the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group. It began with an explosion followed by a gun battle with Afghan security forces, according to Interior Ministry Spokesman Najib Danish, France24 reported.
As gunfire and explosions ripped the premises of local RTA (Radio Television Afghanistan) offices, journalists scrambled to leave the building and some were trapped as the battle continued to rage. At least 14 wounded people were taken to a local hospital, Afghan medical officials said.
Wednesday’s attack was claimed by the IS in a message posted on the Telegram messaging service by Amaq, the news agency linked to the militant group.
The attack on the Jalalabad offices of RTA highlights the growing dangers confronting Afghan journalists as the traditional Afghan spring fighting season rages.
