Reporters Without Borders is saddened to learn that Farhad Taqaddosi, a cameraman working for the Iranian government’s English-language TV news station, Press TV, died yesterday in a Kabul hospital from the injuries he received during Taliban attacks on several buildings in Kabul on 13 September. We offer our condolences to his family.

The US embassy and NATO headquarters, both located in a high-protected part of central Kabul, and the nearby Press TV bureau were all damaged by rocket-propelled grenades during the Taliban attacks.
