`Taliban ‘ splinter group `Feday-e-Mahaz’ claim responsibility for killing `Journalist’ in Kabul claiming he was a Spy for MI6′

#AceWorldNews An extremist Taliban splinter group has claimed responsibility for killing a Swedish-British journalist in Kabul, AP reported.

Nils Horner had worked for Swedish Radio since 2001 as a foreign correspondent. The Feday-e-Mahaz claimed in a statement posted Wednesday on its website that he was a spy for Britain’s MI6 intelligence agency, not a journalist.

The 51-year-old was killed by a shot in the head as he was reporting on Afghanistan’s election on a street in Kabul on Tuesday.
