Radio journalist Duniya Muhiyadin Nur, 26, was shot on 5 June 2005 while she and a colleague were covering an angry protest by bus and truck drivers near Mogadishu.
Nur and fellow journalist Anab Mohamed Yare went to cover a protest on the road from Mogadishu to Afgoye (30 km from the capital) by bus and truck drivers angry about the growing number of military roadblocks in the region.
The drivers set up their own barricades across the road to block traffic and thereby put pressure on the military. All civilian vehicles were ordered to turn back at the barricades but the two journalists did not comply. A few minutes later their car came under fire and Nur was fatally shot in the chest.
Nur, who also presented the programme "Mogadishu and Today" on the FM station Capital Voice Radio, covered current affairs and had interviewed leading Somali politicians.
