Journalists on Saturday protested the latest attack on Express News in Karachi which killed three staffers on Friday night.

According to news reports, armed men on motorcycles shot a technician, a security guard and a driver who were sitting in a stationary Digital Satellite News Gathering Van. Twice earlier last year, the office of

Express News was targeted by militants injuring a few.

An Express News report said the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for the latest attack and called the Express News anchor to confirm it.

An official said the three staff members were shot several times from close range.

In August and December last year the offices of Express News were targeted by gunmen who also threw bombs outside the gate of the media house.  The government has condemned the attack and promised to review security for journalists soon.
