A female journalist who reported on women's rights and spoke out against the dowry system in southern Nepal was killed by a group of attackers, an official said Monday.


Uma Singh was attacked at her apartment Sunday night in Janakpur, about 150 miles (240 kilometers) southeast of the Nepalese capital Katmandu. She died from wounds after being hacked with sharp objects, government administrator Shambhu Koirala said. Police were investigating but no arrests had been made, Koirala said. (AP)
