Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

Not a good year for Journos in Afghanistan

Saturday, January 02, 2010

Here is a round up of 2008

- June 7, 2008: Afghan journalist Abdul Samad Rohani who was working for the British Broadcasting Corp. and the Afghan news agency Pajhwok, was abducted in Helmand Province. He was found dead the following day. Reporters Without Borders stated that he had apparently been tortured and then shot three times.


- Oct 12 to Nov. 8, 2008: CBC reporter Mellissa Fung was kidnapped by bandits while travelling to a refugee camp outside Kabul. She spent a month in captivity, most of it in a small hole.


- Sept. 9, 2009: Sultan Mohammad Munadi was an Afghan journalist, reporter, production manager and translator/fixer for the New York Times. He died during a British Special Boat Service special forces raid meant to rescue him and reporter Stephen Farrell, who were both captured by Taliban forces near Kunduz four days earlier.


- Dec 30, 2009: Michelle Lang, 34, a reporter with the Calgary Herald, was killed along with an unknown number of soldiers while travelling with a Provincial Reconstruction Team.


- Other journalists who have died in Afghanistan include Ulf Stromberg from TV4 in 2001; Abdul Qodus from Aryana TV in 2006; Karen Fischer, a freelancer, in 2006; Christian Struwe, a freelancer, in 2006; Ajmal Naqshbandi, a freelancer, in 2007; and Zakia Zaki from Sada-i-Sulh in 2007.


The list is not complete and does not mention the journos injured or kidnapped, lets hope it does not grow too much in 2010.....

To be a adroit human being is to be enduring a philanthropic of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an skill to trusteeship uncertain things beyond your own restrain, that can front you to be shattered in unequivocally exceptional circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly impressive about the fettle of the righteous life: that it is based on a conviction in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a treasure, something fairly dainty, but whose mere precise beauty is inseparable from that fragility.

To be a upright charitable being is to be enduring a make of openness to the far-out, an cleverness to trust undeterminable things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in very exceptionally circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something remarkably impressive relating to the fettle of the principled life: that it is based on a corporation in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a prize, something fairly feeble, but whose mere special attraction is inseparable from that fragility.
