Farhad Taqaddosi, a cameraman working for Iran's English-language news network Press TV died today in a Kabul hospital of severe injuries sustained during last week’s Taliban attack in the Afghan capital. The Talebs attacked buildings near the US embassy and ISAF headquarters. Mr. Taqaddosi was working at the Press TV office building when it was hit by several rockets. The Taliban have taken responsibility for the attack.
Uskowi on Iran extends its deepest condolences to Taqaddosi’s family and his colleagues at Press TV and to all Iranian journalists.
