Former Afghan TV Presenter Killed In Kabul Explosion

The explosion happened in Makrorayan-e-Char area in Kabul’s PD9 on Saturday morning, police said. 

Three people, including former TOLOnews presenter Yama Siawash, were killed in an explosion in the Makrorayan-e-Char area in Kabul’s PD9 on Saturday morning, his family confirmed.

Kabul police said the explosion happened at around 7:30 am on Saturday morning.

The explosion was a magnetic IED blast that targeted a vehicle carrying the former journalist and two others, according to police.

Police said the explosion targeted a vehicle that belonged to the government-owned Central Bank. All those who lost their lives in the attack, including Siawash, were employees of the Central Bank, police said.

Esmatullah Kohsar, head of media office of the Central Bank, said that Ahmadullah Anas, the operation deputy of the Central Bank, and Amin, a driver of the bank, were also killed in the explosion.

Kohsar said he usually went to his office in the same car that was targeted by the explosion.

The attack comes days after gunmen stormed Kabul University, killed at least 22 people and wounding dozens more. 

Violence has remained high in the country amidst the ongoing efforts to start peace negotiations with the Taliban in Doha.
