A 60 year old Canadian reporter, working for the Associated Press is recovering after being shot in Afghanistan. Kathy Gannon was flown to Kabul for further treatment today after being shot three times in the wrist and shoulder. The Timmins, Ontario native initially underwent what is being described as successful surgery in Khost and is said to be in stable condition. Gannon’s colleague, award-winning photographer Anja Niedringhaus died instantly when an Afghan police commander opened fire on their car at a security forces base in eastern Afghanistan. The officer surrendered and was arrested. The two journalists were in a convoy of election workers delivering ballots from the centre of Khost to the outskirts of the city when they were shot.
