Shahid Soomro, Kawish
20 October 2002
Soomro, who worked for the Sindi-language daily Kawish, was called out of his house by the killers, said Ahmed Raza, correspondent of the Daily Times in Hyderabad. When he emerged, they tried to kidnap him, but he resisted and they shot him before fleeing in a car. He died of serious stomach wounds on his way to hospital. It is thought articles he wrote during the election campaign may have triggered his death.
