Two female journalists working for the Associated Press news agency have been shot by a police officer in eastern Afghanistan, officials say.

One of the women, Anja Niedringhaus, died in the attack.

Her colleague, Kathy Gannon, is reported to be stable.

The journalists were travelling with election workers delivering ballots in Khost province, near the Pakistan border.

The BBC's David Loyn knew both women personally.
