African Union has strongly condemned the brutal murder of Shabelle Network journalist who was gunned down on Thursday by unidentified armed men in Mogadishu.

Special Representative of the Chairperson of the AU Commission for Somalia, Ambassador Boubacar Diarra said he was very shocked and saddened to learn the brutal incident in the capital.

He condemned the atrocious murder of journalist Ahmed Addow Anshur in broad daylight near his home in Dharkenley district.

The ambassador urged the relevant authorities in Mogadishu to carry out a speedy investigation to bring those responsible to justice.

“I am particularly concerned that journalists continue to lose their lives while performing the crucial role of informing the population on issues of national importance. Such criminal and barbaric actions cannot be tolerated” Ambassador Diarra said in a press release.

Anshur is the sixth Somali journalist to be killed since the turn of the year.
