Afghanistan, a former journalist who worked for the Afghan parliament was shot and killed in Kabul, in the latest brazen attack to rock Afghanistan’s capital. Mena Mangal was well known in Kabul circles for her work presenting shows on several television networks, before she left journalism to become a cultural advisor to parliament.

According to interior ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi, Mangal was gunned down in eastern Kabul in broad daylight.

No one has claimed responsibility for Mangal’s death, and it was not immediately known why she has been targeted.
