Hossein Naderi, a reporter for the Afghan Voice News Agency (AVA) and an internship student were killed in the explosion at a gathering of Journalists in Mazar-e-Sharif, including 18 others injured from different media.

According to the Afghan Voice News Agency, Hossein Naderi was 20 years old and a second-year law student. Naderi was a resident of Suzeme Qala district of Sarpul province, working as a local reporter in Mazar-e-Sharif in the Afghan Voice News Agency for two years.

While Akmal Nazari was a journalism student and worked as an intern with Afghan Voice Agency.

The explosion occurred three days ago at the Tebyan Cultural Center during a journalists’ gathering for the award event in Balkh province; at least three people were killed, and 30 others, including 16 journalists, were wounded.

According to the report, several religious clerics, cultural figures, and local officials participated in the conference.

The explosion at the Journalists’ gathering is considered a despicable attack on journalists and freedom of expression in the country and is strongly condemned by the AFJC.

While expressing condolences to the families of Hossein Naderi and Akmal Nazari and other victims of the incident, the Afghan Journalists Center demanded a thorough investigation of those responsible for the criminal act, AFJC said in a news release.
