Unknown gunmen shot 20-year-old radio journalist Horriyo Abdulkadir Sheik Ali four times on Wednesday evening as she left her office at Radio Galkayo, the state broadcaster in the Garsoor neighborhood of Galkayo, Somalia. Abdulkadir is news editor, producer, and presenter for Radio Galkayo and a correspondent for Mogadishu-based Radio Risaale. A colleague said Abdulkadir had complained of repeated threats by unknown callers over her coverage of the conflict between government troops and militias.
