Somalia – Murder of a journalist in Mogadishu (September 18, 2012)

We were appalled to learn of the murder of freelance cameraman Zakariye Mohamed Mohamud Moallim during the evening of September 16, 2012, in Mogadishu. France expresses its solidarity with his family, friends and colleagues.

France utterly condemns the murder of yet another journalist in Somalia.

We demand that full light be shed on this heinous crime and that those responsible be identified and brought to trial.

France reaffirms its constant commitment to the freedom of the press throughout the world and to the right of journalists to freely exercise their profession.

At the 21st session of the Human Rights Council taking place in Geneva from September 10 to 28, France is lending its support to a trans-regional resolution on the protection of journalists.
