You're reading: 2 more Somali journalists murdered; 1 is beheaded

on social media

The Somali journalists union said Friday that the one journalist was beheaded on Thursday, and the other was shot dead by gunmen Friday.

No group has yet claimed the responsibility for the latest killings, but the deaths fit into a year-long pattern of attacks against Somali journalists. The deaths have been met with judicial inaction in a capital city with crippled government institutions.

Most of the 15 deaths appear to have been targeted killings, though last week three journalists were killed when a suicide bomber detonated explosives in a cafe popular with journalists and politicians.
