An unidentified gunman shot dead a Swedish cameraman during a demonstration in the Somali capital Friday. The assailant shot the cameraman in the chest at close range, killing him on the spot before disappearing in the crowd, an Associated Press reporter who witnessed the shooting said. Another Western reporter who was walking with the victim was unhurt. In Stockholm, Swedish Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Nina Ersman told The Associated Press that the man was a Swedish citizen who was working as a cameraman for the British TV station Channel 4. Somalis had been demonstrating in support of an agreement intended to ease tensions between the country's weak government and an Islamic militia that has seized control of Mogadishu.
