A group of armed men shot Tunio, a reporter for the popular
Sindhi news channel Kawish Television Network, in the small office used as the
station’s bureau in Lalu Ranwak village in the province of Sindh, about 535
miles (850 kilometers) south of Islamabad, the capital, news reports said.
Tunio’s brother, Rustam, and their friend, Deedar Khaskheli, were also killed,
the reports said.
Local journalists told CPJ the gunmen were members of the
Mughairi tribe, a rival to the Tunio tribal group. Some also said they believed
Tunio was murdered because of his story on a failed marriage attempt between
two members of the rival clans.
