Kabul Crowd Rallies For Closure of Private Station

(RFE/RL) KABUL, April 19, 2007 (RFE/RL) -- About 200 people have gathered near the headquarters of the private Tolo TV station to demand it be closed, RFE/RL's Radio Free Afghanistan reported.

The demonstrators support a decision by the Afghan Attorney General Abdul Jabar Sabet to raid the Tolo TV building on April 17.

Sabet says he ordered the raid after a reporter inaccurately paraphrased his remarks in a way that could provoke unrest. Tolo TV's management says the correspondent's report was accurate.
