Afghanistan – Attack on the TOLO News television station (January 20, 2016)

France condemns the January 20th attack on the TOLO News channel in Kabul, which left many dead.

Our thoughts go out to the victims, their families, and Afghanistan’s media professionals. In targeting this network, it was the freedom of the press that the terrorists were attempting to attack.

France reiterates its support for the freedom of the press and the freedom of expression, both fundamental to building the rule of law.
