Naïma Hammouda

Révolution Africaine

August 2, 1995, in Saoula, Algeria

Hammouda, a cultural reporter with the weekly Révolution Africaine and formerly with Le Matin and L'Hebdo Libéré, was shot to death. Her body was discovered near an apartment building where she had been staying in the Algiers suburb of Saoula. She was so disfigured that her remains were not correctly identified until August 11. Earlier, it was mistakenly reported that her remains were those of L'Hebdo Libéré journalist Aïcha Benamar, who used to live in the same building.
