'Reporters Without Borders expressed shock and deep sadness at the news of the death today of journalist Nur Muse Hussein of Radio Voice of Holy Quran as a result of a bullet wound he received on 20 April. The journalist’s death was announced by the worldwide press freedom organisation’s partner organisation, the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ). He was the fourth to be killed in Somalia this year. Muse Hussein, aged 56, was shot in the leg as he and three colleagues were covering clashes between pro-government militia of the Hiran region and members of the Islamist Hisbul Islam movement operating in the south and centre of the country. Fighters opened fire after they introduced themselves as journalists in the town of Beledweyne about 300 km north of the capital Mogadishu.'
