Funeral of AFP Chief Photographer Shah Marai Faizi

Six other journalists were injured in the explosion. The second explosion, which was described as considerably larger, hit about half an hour later, as responders had gathered near the police cordon blocking the area.

United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said he was "outraged" by the suicide blasts, which were claimed by the Daesh group and left another 49 people wounded. The number in 2017 was higher than in 2016 and 2015.

After the Taliban were ousted from power in 2001, Marai, who comes from the Shamali Plain north of Kabul, covered the country's many upheavals which he described on AFP's Correspondent blog.

Masouda, a young woman who was with her husband when he was wounded in the attack, lashed out at the authorities.

At least eight other journalists were injured.

The Islamic State group claimed the Kabul bombings in a statement posted online, saying it targeted the Afghan intelligence headquarters.

Joel Simon, the committee's executive director, told CNN that the bombing in Kabul "was an attack on the global media". "The international community's commitment to the Afghan people and a lasting peace in Afghanistan will not be shaken by such attacks".

"This latest attack on journalists in Afghanistan is a reminder of the extreme dangers to media workers in that country and of the extremely brutal tactics used there by enemies of the free press", said Steven Butler, Centre to Protect Journalists Asia programme coordinator.

And in a third attack, 11 children were killed in a suicide bombing intended to target Nato troops in Kandahar province.

"Killing journalists is an attack on freedom of expression", Human Rights Watch said Monday.

In some Afghan provinces, it said, the Taliban forced the media to pay arbitrary taxes that were tantamount to ransoms. After 16 years of conflict, critics say, the US is in a triple bind: it cannot win the war, it cannot halt the war, and it cannot leave.

Besides targeted killing, journalists have also been victims of being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Shah, 29, had worked with BBC for more than a year.

In fact, Afghanistan fares better than most in the region. "It's that corruption is so rampant in that country, in that city". "Under the laws of war, deliberate attacks on civilians are war crimes".

"These were my brothers, my sisters, my family". The broadcaster did not immediately give further details. He wondered whether the same fate awaited him. From almost no electronic media until 2002, today Afghanistan has 110 TV channels and 304 radio stations, according to Afghanistan Telecom Regulatory Authority (ATRA). Tolo News cameraman Yar Mohammed Tokhi, was to have been married within weeks.

Hananzai was a young radio reporter with a background in broadcasting and specialised in covering Afghanistan's narcotics trade.

According to CNN, the first explosion occurred in the morning in an area where the US embassy is located.

Big scoop from The New York Times's Matt Apuzzo and Michael Schmidt, who obtained a list of questions that Special Counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask President Trump. "They particularly attack journalists as they think, that way they can attract more attentions". I have five and they spend their time cooped up inside the house.
