March 6 — Washington Post reporter Peter Baker, part of the convoy of journalists attacked Monday, describes what happened.
In a related development, international peacekeepers in Afghanistan said Wednesday they had received credible intelligence reports about plans to kidnap a foreign journalist in retaliation for the Gardez operation.
On Monday, a Toronto Star newspaper correspondent was seriously wounded when a hand grenade was thrown at her car while she was heading towards Gardez.
“There is a serious threat about the kidnap of a journalist in retaliation for the operation in Gardez,” said Capt. Graham Dunlop, a spokesman for the multinational International Security Assistance Force. “We urge journalists everywhere in Afghanistan to maintain extra vigilance and consider their movements.”
