HeadlineMay 13, 2019

In Afghanistan, women’s rights advocates are calling for justice after two gunmen shot dead a prominent former broadcast journalist and government adviser in Kabul Saturday. Mina Mangal was killed on her way to her job at the Afghan Cultural Affairs Commission. Days earlier, she posted on social media that she was receiving threats and feared for her life.

In more news from Afghanistan, authorities say they have captured the Taliban intelligence chief responsible for last week’s attack on police headquarters in the northern province of Baghlan that killed at least 13 officers and wounded dozens of others, including civilians.
