Meet the man bringing independent journalism back to Afghanistan
The drone strike killing of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri inside Afghanistan made headlines around the world this week. And it came as a new Afghan media outlet was just being launched. Amu TV promises to deliver independent journalism – something that's increasingly imperiled in Afghanistan today. And it's being led by veteran Afghan journalist Lotfullah Najafizada, whose home base is now here in Canada. He joins Talia Schlanger to talk about the new venture, and what the killing of al-Zawahri says about where Afghanistan finds itself one year after the U.S. withdrawal and Taliban takeover.
