The head of the United Nations cultural organisation UNESCO on Thursday deplored the slaying of TV presenter Mohamed Ibrahim Gabow in the Somali capital Mogadishu last week, urging his killers to be brought to justice.

“I condemn the killing of Mohamed Ibrahim Gabow,” said Audrey Azoulay.

"I call on the Somali authorities to spare no effort in bringing to trial those responsible for this attack on the human rights of freedom of expression and freedom of information.”

Gabow, a Mogadishu-based news presenter for Kalsan TV, died in a car bombing on 11 December.

Four journalists have been killed in Somalia so far this year, according to media rights group Reporters without Borders.
