Somalia – Murder of a journalist (April 21, 2013)
France utterly condemns the murder, on April 21, 2013, in Mogadishu, Mohamed Ibrahim Rageh, a journalist working for Somali National Television. We extend our condolences to his family and friends.
France demands that the Somali authorities do everything possible to identify, prosecute and convict the perpetrators of this crime. It urges them to take all necessary measures to allow journalists to carry out their work freely and in complete safety.
In these painful circumstances, France reaffirms its solidarity with journalists who, notably in Somalia, continue to work to ensure the circulation of free and independent information, sometimes at the risk of their own lives.
