A BBC journalist who died during a Taliban suicide attack may have been shot dead by US special forces, an independent investigation has found.

Ahmed Omed Khpulwak was one of more than 20 people killed in attacks on a TV station in Uruzgan province, in the south of Afghanistan, on 28 July.

The Taliban was initially blamed for the 25-year-old’s death, but an investigation by the Kabul-based Afghanistan Analysts’ Network (AAN) said Khpulwak may have been killed by US weaponry once the Taliban attackers were already dead.

“It seems – in what would be the worst luck of all – that Omed may have survived the suicide bombs only to be shot dead by US special forces when they entered the ruined RTA building,” the ANN investigation, published on Wednesday, said.
