The second suicide bomber was on foot, a police official said, and mingled among the crowd of journalists who had gathered after the first blast.

The suicide bombing attack, claimed by Isil, was the deadliest to target journalists since the fall of the Taliban in 2001. He was on his way to work when two unknown men on a motorcycle approached him and shot him dead.

Police spokesman Hashmat Stanekzai told the Associated Press that 25 were killed and 45 wounded.

This is not the first time journalists have been targeted in Afghanistan. "That document was provided to the Times by a person outside Mr. Trump's legal team".

Local Azadi Radio said one of its reporters - Abdullah Hananzay - was killed in the attack.

RSF said 36 media workers have been killed in Afghanistan in attacks by Daesh, also known as ISIS or ISIL, or the Taliban since 2016. AFP sent a text reporter and a photographer from Moscow right away and before you knew it, there were a dozen of us. He described the day after the Taliban fled the capital, recalling, "It was like people were coming out from the shadows into the light of life again".

Masouda, a young woman who was with her husband nearby, assailed the authorities.

But as the conflict has intensified, so has the toll it has taken on Afghan media.

"We also send our condolences to the families of other journalists killed in this terrible attack". This prompted journalists to hurry to the scene, and that is when a second blast took place.

"That attack was preceded by a car bombing in southern Afghanistan in which at least 13 people were killed and 35 others injured". However, Western and Afghan officials suspect that the Taliban's Haqqani Network sometimes assists ISIL in carrying out attacks. Hundreds of people attended his funeral later on Monday.

In 2016, 7 employees of popular TV channel Tolo were killed in a Taliban suicide bombing.

Police spokesman Mati Ullah said the suspected bomber targeted a convoy of Romanian soldiers in the Damaan district.

In a statement released by the AFP, Marai had worked for the AFP since 1996, when he started as a driver and fixer. In some provinces, there's also evidence that these groups have started imposing exorbitant media "taxes," forcing outlets to scale back or even shut down. In addition eight members of the Nato-led Resolute Support coalition were wounded, the force said. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for that attack. "There is no justification whatsoever for such attacks".

After a $126 billion U.S. relief and reconstruction investment lasting nearly two decades, Afghanistan is the 183rd worst country in the world to "do business".

President Ashraf Ghani's government is under pressure on multiple fronts this year as it prepares to hold long-delayed legislative elections in October, while its security forces struggle to get the upper hand on the battlefield and prevent civilian casualties.

As stated by the Committee to Protect Journalists, Monday was the worst day for journalist killings because terrorists stormed Charlie Hebdo magazine's Paris headquarters in 2015.

The journalists who were badly injured included Naser Hashemi of Al Jazeera, Omar Soltani of Reuters, Ahmadshah Azimi of Nedai Aghah, Ayar Amar of the weekly Vahdat Mili and Davod Ghisanai of the privately-owned TV channel Mivand.
