Iranian Press TV cameraman killed in Kabul

Kabul,20 Sep. 2011

A cameraman for Iranian English-language news network Press TV has died nearly a week after he was injured when a rocket hit the network's Kabul office as gunmen attacked buildings near the U.S. embassy and NATO headquarters.

Press TV reported Tuesday that Farhad Taqaddosi died in a hospital in the Afghan capital city earlier that day.

The network said Taqaddosi was working in its office on 13 September when the building came under attack as reported Taliban insurgents launched a barrage of rockets and gunfire on the heart of Kabul's diplomatic and military enclave.
