Somali journalist Yusuf Ahmed Abukar kill in explosion
Mogadishu - XINHUA

 A 27-year old Somali journalist was killed when a bomb fitted to his car went off on Saturday in Somali capital of Mogadishu, local media reported.
"The award winning journalist Yusuf Ahmed Abukar was killed in Hamarweyn district on Saturday morning, when a bomb believed to have been attached to his car exploded," the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ) said in a statement.
The Somali journalists union expressed shock at the killing and condemned it as "senseless and heinous murder". The slain journalist was among the winners of the UN-sponsored Somalia Media Awards last year.
Yusuf Ahmed, better known as Yusuf Kenyan, worked for the Mogadishu-based Mustaqbal radio and Ergo radio, a humanitarian radio based in Nairobi, NUSOJ added.
Ahmed mainly covered humanitarian issues for both stations and has previously worked for a number of local media outlets in Mogadishu.
It is not immediately clear why the journalist was targeted. He is among the dozens journalists killed in Somalia since 1990.
No group has ever claimed responsibility for targeting Somali journalists. Media leaders called for "an independent and international investigation" into the killing of Somali reporter.
Few cases have been brought to court in Somalia in connection with the killing of Somali journalists.
Somalia is considered as the most dangerous place in Africa for journalists to operate and the second worst in the world after Syria.
