Taliban kill raltive of German jounalists

Taliban fighters hunting a Deutsche Welle journalist have “shot dead a member of his family and seriously injured another,” the German public broadcaster said in a report on Thursday evening.

The militants had been searching door-to-door to find the journalist, who now lives in Germany. Other relatives were able to flee and are now fugitives from the Taliban.

“The killing of a close relative of one of our editors by the Taliban yesterday is inconceivably tragic, and testifies to the acute danger in which all our employees and their families in Afghanistan find themselves,” DW Director General Peter Limbourg said.
