There are some unknown addresses that in collusion with some restricted media outlets sell journalistic documents in the black market, said Masroor Lutfi, ANJU media officer at a press conference in Kabul on Tuesday.
“Concerns regarding occupational safety, economic hardship, and dozens of other issues have recently threatened the journalist community,” he added.
