Randrianirina, a journalist with Malagasy National Radio, was attacked by unknown assailants on August 17. Severely injured, he fell into a coma and never regained consciousness before dying the next week. A month prior to the attack, he had broadcast a report from the south of Madagascar on sapphire trafficking. The report implicated the mafia in the trafficking and provided names of some of those said to be involved.
