PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Pakistani police say gunmen have opened fire on a vehicle carrying a local TV journalist in northwestern Pakistan, killing him and wounding his cameraman.
District police chief Qazi Jamil-ur-Rehman said Tuesday that journalist Noor-ul-Hassan was killed in the overnight attack in the northwestern city of Peshawar, the capital of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province which borders Afghanistan.
No one has claimed responsibility and authorities say police are still trying to determine the motive for the attack.
Hassan worked for a regional TV station and is not known to have any enemies.
Such attacks on journalists in Pakistan are common. In some cases the assailants have never been found.
