NAIROBI: A Somali radio journalist was shot by two gunmen in Mogadishu on Friday, according to news reports. Mohamed Nur Mohamed, who was hit twice in the abdomen, survived the attack, the reports said.
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said Mohamed, a correspondent for Radio Bar-Kulan, a UN-sponsored radio broadcaster with headquarters in Nairobi, was walking home in the Hamarjajab neighborhood of the capital when the gunmen attacked him and then fled the scene.
Mohamed's colleagues took him to a local hospital, where he is in stable condition, according to news reports. It is unclear if the attack was related to his work.
Abdirahman Hussein, the news editor of Radio Bar-Kulan, told CPJ that Mohamed is considered one of Radio Bar-Kulan's best correspondents because he covers dangerous parts of Mogadishu where other journalists fear to go. "He's fearless - he brings reports that you were never expecting, risking his life, going from corner to corner in Mogadishu," he said.
