Another Somali Radio Station Attacked

Recently there have been a series of attacks on journalists in the Somali region. The latest of these is an attack on a radio station in the Somalian state of Puntland. Hand grenades were thrown into Radio Galkayo station, causing damage but no injuries. This is not the first attack experienced by Radio Galkoyo; last month Horriya Abdulkadir, one of the station’s journalists, was shot as she stood outside the station. Eight days after that Hassan Mohamed Ali, a reporter for Voice of Peace Radio in Basaso, was also severely wounded in a shooting. Attacks such as these are making the climate increasingly hostile for journalists.
