New York, June 6, 2007-The Committee to Protect Journalists is horrified by the murder in her home of radio station director Zakia Zaki in Afghanistan's Parwan province, north of the capital Kabul. Unidentified gunmen shot her several times near midnight this morning in the bedroom she was sharing with her small children, according to international news reports.
CPJ is investigating to determine the motives for her murder, the second killing of a female broadcast journalist in less than a week. On Friday, television news presenter Shokiba Sanga Amaaj was murdered in her Kabul home.
