Warsame, 24, was shot in crossfire between Transitional Federal Government
forces and hard-line Islamic insurgents in the capital as he was walking to Radio
Shabelle for his morning broadcast, local journalists told CPJ.

According to local journalists, the fighting was so intense that no one could attend
to Warsame for more than half an hour. The reporter, described as a
“workaholic” by colleagues, was survived by his wife of six months.
