Somalia – Murder of media professional Abdi Jeylani Malaq Marshale (August 2, 2012)
France condemns in the strongest possible terms the July 31st killing in Mogadishu of Abdi Jeylani Malaq Marshale, a media professional with the Kulmiye radio station and Universal TV.
We offer our condolences to his family, his loved ones and his colleagues.
Since the beginning of the year, seven journalists have lost their lives in Somalia because of their profession and their commitment to freedom of expression.
In these circumstances, France reaffirms its solidarity with journalists in Somalia and throughout the world who—at the risk of their lives and in particularly difficult conditions—are continuing to work courageously to ensure the free and independent circulation of information.
