Gunmen on a motorbike shot an Afghan women’s right activist, Freshta Kohistani and her brother in the country’s capital city, Kabul.
The activist’s assassination is coming days after she condemned the wave of assassinations ravaging Afghanistan.
The 29-year-old was the second activist to be killed in Kabul in two days after a prominent pro-democracy advocate was gunned down on Wednesday.
Kohistani had enjoyed a relatively large following on social media, and regularly organized civil society events in Kabul calling for women’s rights. She was married and had one child.
She wrote on Facebook days before her death that she had asked for protection from the authorities after receiving threats.
The deceased also condemned the ongoing wave of assassinations of journalists and other prominent figures.
She tweeted in November:
‘Afghanistan is not a place to live in. There is no hope for peace. Tell the tailor to take your measurement, tomorrow it could be your turn.’
A prominent Afghan journalist was also shot this week while on his way to a mosque in the eastern city of Ghazni.
