Australia: Federal police raid ABC headquarters over 'The Afghan Files'

Australian Federal Police (AFP) officers left the Sydney headquarters of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) after a raid on Wednesday related to a series of stories on Afghanistan first broadcast in 2017, known as 'The Afghan Files'. Footage shows AFP officers leaving the ABC headquarters around 8pm local time (11:00 CET) and then loading bags into a car. The officers reportedly had a... Еще search warrant and demanded access to documents including emails, notes and drafts, and left with two USB drives containing electronic files. 'The Afghan Files' consist of a two-year old investigation led by ABC journalists Dan Oakes and Sam Clark that shed light on allegations of unlawful killing of unarmed civilians and children committed by Australian special forces in Afghanistan. The raid took place one day after the Australian police searched the home of journalist Annika Smethurst, raising concerns over freedom of the press, though the AFP claim the two raids are not connected.
