An Afghan journalist surprised viewers on Tuesday by appearing on television to announce that an attack on the station in Kabul by Islamic State has just ended. Parwiz Sapy told viewers of Shamshad TV that all staff members in the building are safe after he broke a glass window in the newsroom to help them escape. However, a security guard was killed at the gate when one of the IS militants wearing police uniform blew himself up before the rest stormed the station. The battle between Afghan security forces and militants lasted four hours.
