From OpIndia

On March 2, the ISIS gunned down three female Afghanistan journalists who used to translate Indian and Turkish dramas to local languages. Three of them died while the fourth one was severely injured and currently lodged in hospital for treatment.

Afghan officials had initially accused the Taliban of killing the women in two separate attacks this week.  Disputing that, ISIS later claimed responsibility for the attack and revealed the women had been killed for working for media stations associated with the Afghan government.

One colleague, who asked to remain anonymous said: "Three innocent girls were shot dead in the daylight in the middle of the city. Nobody is safe anymore."

While talking to AFP, Zalmai Latifi, director at the TV station, said four female media workers were attacked in two separate incidents after they left the office. He said, “They are all dead. They were going home from the office on foot when they were shot.”

Shokrullah Pasoon, the news editor at the TV station, told Al Jazeera that the three women used to dub Indian and Turkish dramas in Dari and Pashto that are local languages of Afghanistan. According to the SITE Intelligence Group . . . extremists and jihadist organizations alleged that the attack was targeted towards the employees at the Privately-owned Enikas TV station in the eastern city of Jalalabad. All victims were aged between 18 and 20

Lotfullah Najafizada, the Head of TOLOnews TV tweeted their names and tweets of outrage and condolence were returned.
