Peacekeepers in Afghanistan Say Foreign Journalists At - 2002-03-06


International peacekeepers in Afghanistan say they have received credible intelligence reports about increased threats to foreign journalists in retaliation for the U-S-led offensive near the eastern Afghan town of Gardez.

A spokesman for the international force, Graham Dunlop, urged foreign reporters to take extra precautions -- saying kidnapping is the most obvious type of threat they may face in Afghanistan.

A Canadian reporter for the Toronto Star newspaper was badly injured Monday when the car in which she and other journalists were traveling in came under fire near Gardez.

U-S-led forces are engaged in their biggest offensive of the Afghan military campaign, sending in warplanes and ground forces to oust al-Qaida and Taleban fighter holed up in the Arma mountains.
