Journalist killed in Somalia, third this year

Nov. 18, 2014 10:25 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 18, 2014 10:25 P.M.)
MOGADISHU (AFP) -- A Somali journalist working for a London-based television station became the third reporter to die in the war-torn country this year after he was killed Tuesday in the semi-autonomous Puntland region, police said.

Abdirisak Ali Abdi, who worked for Garowe Radio in Puntland and London-based Horn TV, was shot by a group of unidentified attackers in the town of Galkayo in the Mudug region.

"The assailants have escaped after the shooting but the police are still in pursuit of the perpetrators," said Hashi Dhaqane, a police official in the town said.
