Taliban use Twitter to claim responsibility for murder
“The Taliban took to Twitter this morning to claim responsibility for the assassination of an Afghan election official. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid made the announcement in a tweet posted early Wednesday, marking what is believed to be the first time that the insurgent group has used Twitter to claim responsibility for an attack.
Police in the northern province of Kunduz confirmed to the New York Times that Mohammad Amanullah died early Wednesday after sustaining fatal injuries from two gunmen riding on a motorcycle. Amanullah was the head of the Kunduz office of Afghanistan’s Independent Election Commission (IEC), a position he held since 2003.”
