Urgent: Kabul threat alert

This from a trusted embassy contact:

“Sources picked up a threat against international journalists at Paghman/ PD 5, the refugee camp where Melissa Fung was kidnapped. Elders at the refugee camp are reportedly agitating about conditions there, and inviting journalists to come and see. This is reportedly being done in order to kidnap one or more of you.

Please forward this to any and all of your colleagues"

Stay safe, y’all.
