Suspected serial killers of Mogadishu-based journalists have been arrested in the city and handed over to the national security services (NSS) for further investigations, Benadir regional authority says.

Mohamed Yussuf Osman, spokesman for the regional administration told Sunatimes that they arrested suspected gangs who have been on the prowl targeting media personalities in Mogadishu whose latest victim is said to be Sunatimes Mogadishu correspondent Mohamed Noor Sharif.

Sharif is now nursing gunshot wounds after he was attached in Mogadishu late last month.

Osman said his administration is saddened by the upsurge of organised crimes against journalists in Mogadishu and other regions in the country.

He stated that they are awaiting the outcome of the NSS’s investigations into the suspects for further actions.

His sentiment comes a day after media owners and other stakeholders held talks with the regional administration to chat the way forward in tackling attacks against journalists in the war-torn capital.

Press freedom watchdog Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has described Somalia as the deadliest African nation for journalists.
