SAFMA condemns raid on reporter house

Oct 01, 2011 - 17:24

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The South Asian Free Media Association (SAFMA) Afghanistaninfo-icon on Tuesday condemned a raid on Khabaryal reporter Yama Pakhtoon’s house in Kandahar province.

The nighttime raid, lasting several hours, was conducted by the Afghan and foreign forces, SAFMA said, calling the action against the law of the land.

Security personnel found nothing objectionable from the reporter's house, except two computers which the US-led coalition took away, a statement from the association said.

"SAFMA-Afghanistan calls this attack against the law of the country, considers it a threat to all journalists and demands an end to such illegal raids," the statement added.
