so, is this fake news since they're not immediately calling it a terror attack?

The International Committee of the Red Cross says six of its staff members were shot dead and two are missing after their convoy was attacked by unknown assailants in Afghanistan.

The Red Cross workers were on their way to deliver livestock materials when they were attacked near the town of Shibergan in the northern province of Jawzan, close to Afghanistan's border with Turkmenistan. Reuters reports that the area has been pounded by snowstorms in recent days.

The ICRC says "it is not yet clear who carried out the attack or why."

The provincial police chief, Rahmatullah Turkistani, tells The Associated Press that the attack "was likely carried out by Islamic State militants, who have a presence in the area." The news service adds that no group has claimed responsibility for the attack and that the Taliban says it was not involved.

but you didn't answer my question, did it really happen if 'islamic terror' isn't in the headline?
