Somali journalist Sagal Osman gunned down by unknown assailants

A woman journalist who worked for a state-run radio station was shot and killed at the weekend in Somalia.

She was shot dead near a college campus where she was studying.

Al-Shabaab militants are the main suspects of the attack, although they are yet to claim responsibility. The militants are known to target journalists.

Somalia is one of the most dangerous places in the world for reporters. Last year, another female journalist died in a car blast. The two men convicted of killing her were executed in April.
