Maltese investigative journalist killed in vehicle bomb

Gay rights lobby MGRM, the human rights NGOs Aditus Foundation, Integra Foundation, the Critical Institute and the Platform of Human Rights Organisation in Malta, extended their condolences to the family of Caruana Galizia and expressed their concern at the "threat to freedom of speech that her violent murder poses".

A auto bomb has killed an investigative journalist in Malta, the island nation's prime minister said.

In response to her death, Prime Minister Muscat, who has denied all allegations, made a statement saying: "Everyone knows Ms. Caruana Galizia was a harsh critic of mine, both politically and personally, but nobody can justify this barbaric act in any way ..."

He said: "I will not rest until I see justice done in this case".

Caruana Galizia, 53, ran a hugely popular blog in which she relentlessly highlighted cases of alleged corruption, often involving politicians from the Mediterranean island of Malta. "Our country deserves justice".

Ms Galizia's outspoken blog had turned its fire on opposition politicians of late.

Caruana Galizia caused a stir when she published an article stating that a company mentioned in the Panama Papers leak organized by WikiLeaks belonged to Muscat's wife, a claim the prime minister has called a lie.

In another entry a year ago, she wrote: "Malta´s public life is afflicted with dangerously unstable men with no principles or scruples".

Joseph Muscat said the bomb that killed reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia exploded on Monday afternoon as she left her home in a town outside Malta's capital, Valletta. It gave no further information.
