Ten journalists were among 31 people killed in a series of attacks in Afghanistan on Monday, including a BBC reporter and a well-known photographer who had written of the dangers of reporting in the Afghan capital.

Local officials told Stars and Stripes that Romanian soldiers were among the wounded.

"The deliberate targeting of journalists in the attack highlights once again the risks media professionals face in carrying out their essential work", he said.

The primary blast occurred at round at eight a.m. native time within the Shashdarak space of the town, the place the US embassy and Afghan authorities buildings are situated, prompting journalists to hurry to the scene. "So theses are the reporters who keep the world informed".

Pakistan reiterates its condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and resolves to fight this menace till its elimination, it said. The Islamic State extremist group claimed responsibility for the attack, which killed the most media workers ever in a single attack in Afghanistan.

But the Taliban, and more recently ISIS, have proven to be dogged and often ruthless adversaries.

Their story was the story of their country, and they died telling it.

"I saw journalists covered with blood, this time they targeted the media". Special envoys would take turns coming here, and we would regularly go to the frontline on the Shomali Plain, where the Northern Alliance was holding out against the Taliban.

Adding this is as a "direct assault on the freedom of expression", he said, "there is no justification whatsoever for such attacks".

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani condemned the attacks.

In a statement, the foreign ministry said: "We are distressed and grieved at the loss of precious human lives".

An Agence France-Presse photographer and a cameraman for the local Tolo TV station were among the fatalities, police said. "It's a terrible loss for the people of Afghanistan, however, it's a loss for everybody around the globe who cares about the news".

Afghan security forces stand guard near the site of a blast in Kabul, Afghanistan April 30, 2018. The statement said the second attacker detonated his explosives vest after that.

"And the reason this kind of attack is possible is not just that the security forces and police lack the capacity to protect", Rondeaux said.

At least nine Afghan journalists were killed Monday in a bombing in Kabul, and a 10th died in an unrelated attack in the country's east, according to Afghan officials and media organizations.

Journalists from Radio Free Europe and Afghan broadcasters Tolo News and 1TV were among the others killed.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with those wounded and with the innocent Afghans whose lives were needlessly taken from them", said Gen. John Nicholson, the commander of Resolute Support.

He also expressed his deep condolences for the families that have lost their loved ones in the bomb attacks along with wishing the injured speedy recovery. The insurgents ambushed the police vehicle and fired RPGs.

In a separate attack, also on Monday, BBC reporter Ahmad Shah, 29, was shot dead in an attack in the eastern Afghan province of Khost.

Relatives, colleagues and friends carry the coffin of Shah Marai Faizi.

Marai began working at AFP as a driver in 1996 and rose through the ranks to become the bureau's top photographer.
