ISIS militants are claiming responsibility for a deadly attack on a news station in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Witnesses say gunmen disguised as police opened fire in the building Tuesday, killing at least two people and wounding 20 others.
This comes after they detonated explosives at the station’s gate to gain access to the building.
Security personnel fired back at the attackers, leaving one suspect dead.
The station’s news director said the attack on the freedom of media will not silence them.
Afghan security forces have secured the area, and the station has resumed broadcasting.
The attacked happened on the same day NATO announced plans to bring in an additional 3,000 troops in an effort to gain grounds on Taliban militants.
