Afghanistan violence: Former TV presenter Yama Siawash killed – BBC News

Yama Siawash Violence in Afghanistan has worsened in recent months including targeted killings of journalists, politicians and rights activists.

Last week the US Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) reported that in the last three months there had been a 50% rise in “enemy-initiated attacks” compared with the previous three.

It comes as the Taliban conducts peace talks with the Afghan government in Doha, Qatar. The talks – which follow an earlier agreement between the Taliban and the US in February aimed at ending the conflict – have stalled over preliminary issues.
