MOGADISHU (AFP) - Two gunmen shot dead a technician employed at Somalia's state-run broadcaster Radio Mogadishu on Saturday, the sixth media professional killed in the country this year, officials and a colleague said.

"Two men armed with pistols shot Ahmed Sharif and escaped the scene. He was rushed to hospital but he died instantly," said colleague Mohamed Sacid. Deputy Information Minister Abdishakur Ali Mire condemned the killing, which comes after 18 media professionals were killed in Somalia in 2012.
