KABUL: Three women working for a local TV broadcaster in Afghanistan were shot dead in two separate incidents on Tuesday. The killings appear to be the latest in a series of targeted attacks on journalists and members of civil society.

The women were attacked in two parts of eastern Jalalabad, the provincial capital of Nangarhar province, close to the border with Pakistan. The Enikass TV employees, one of whom was wearing a burqa, were walking home from work when gunmen opened fire, local officials said.
