The National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ) said that the producer of Radio Baidoa was killed alongside his pregnant when gunmen entered the couple's home at night in the town of Baidoa, 270km south west of the Somali capital, Mogafishu and shot them dead. The attackers also killed the couple's neighbour. NUSOJ quoted Omar's colleagues as saying that he was targeted for his professional activity. Daud Ali Omar became the first journalist to be killed in Somalia since the start of 2015, NUSOJ added.
