The Australian Federal Police (AFP) raided the ABC’s Ultimo offices on Wednesday morning over a series of 2017 stories documenting unlawful killing by Australian troops in Afghanistan. This is the second in as many days the AFP has launched a raid in response to reporting on security matters. 

The AFP’s warrant named three journalists -- news director Gaven Morris, as well as reporters Dan Oakes and Sam Clark, who wrote the 2017 articles.
