Norwegian and American journalists killed in Taliban suicide blast

A Norwegian newspaper journalist was killed in a suicide bomb attack last night after Taliban fighters broke into a hotel in Afghanistan.

Carsten Thomassen, 38, from Norwegian paper Dagbalet, died from his injuries in a Czech Nato hospital near Kabul airport. The Guardian quotes his paper expressing “great sorrow and powerlessness” at his death.

The US State Department is not releasing the American journalist’s identity until his next of kin have been informed.
