Iranian TV channel cameraman dies

Iranian TV channel cameraman dies

Sep 20, 2011 - 19:50

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): A cameraman of Iran's Press TV channel, who was injured in a Talibaninfo-icon attack in Kabul last week, died on Tuesday, his colleague said.

A Taliban-fired rocket landed in the courtyard of the TV channel's office, wounding Sayed Farhad Taqadussi, his colleague Syed Mohammad Amin Alimi said.

The Iranian TV channel's office is located in the heavily-fortified Wazir Akbar Khan neighbourhood. Taqadussi succumbed to his injuries at the Aliabad Hospital a week after the assault.

On September 18, six suicide attackers attacked the US embassy, the ISAF headquarters, National Directorate of Security (NDS) and other government offices.

Taqadussi, 23, who worked for different media outlets in Kabul, had married two years back. He had been working with Press TV for the last two years.
