On March 20, Rachida Hammadi, a well-known investigative reporter for Algerian State Television, and her sister, Houriya Hammadi, a secretary for the television station, were gunned down by unknown assailants while waiting outside their parents' home for a hired car to pick them up and take them to work. Houriya died instantly. Rachida sustained two bullet wounds to the neck, one by each ear. She died in a Paris hospital on March 31.
