Farhad Taqaddosi, Press TV's cameraman in Kabul, has succumbed to his injuries sustained in a rocket attack.
A cameraman working for Iran's English-language news network Press TV has succumbed to his injuries sustained during a rocket attack in Afghanistan.


Farhad Taqaddosi died in a hospital in the Afghan capital city of Kabul on Tuesday.

Press TV's office came under attack last week after several gunmen attacked buildings near the US embassy and NATO headquarters.

The cameraman was working at Press TV's office when the building came under the rocket attack.

Taliban militants claimed responsibility for the attacks.

At least 20 journalists have been killed in Afghanistan since the US-led invasion of the country in 2001.

Press TV is extensively networked with bureaus located in the world's most strategic cities.
