Gunmen shot and killed a Somali radio journalist in the south of the country Friday, a colleague said, in the third violent death of a journalist within two weeks. Abdulkadir Moallim Kaskey, who worked for a local station called Benadir, died and a woman traveling with him was wounded in an attack on their minibus in southwestern Gedo province, said a colleague, Mohamed Sanweyn. "Abdulkadir Mahad Moallim Kaskey was a young talented journalist, and we are deeply concerned by his killing," another colleague, Mohamed Mo'allin, told the Associated Press by phone. He did not know why Kaskey had been killed. On Aug. 11, two journalists from Mogadishu-based HornAfrik were murdered, the first man by gunmen and the second in an explosion when he returned from his colleague's funeral.
