Hamdaniya, North Iraq (AINA) -- A group from the Kurdish militia belonging to the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) attacked the Nineveh headquarters of the Assyrian Democratic Movement's TV station, Ashur TV. The KDP militia forced the TV station staff, including two female news anchors, out of the building and forcibly confined them in their vehicle outside of the Bakhdeda (Hamdaniya) TV station. The Ashur TV station staff driver was severely beaten by the KDP militia and was hospitalized.

This is the latest in a string of attacks by the KDP militia on the independently run AshurTV in the predominantly Assyrian Christian area of the Nineveh Plains.
