South Sudanese journalist shot dead in capital

A South Sudanese journalist has been shot dead in what a press freedom group described as a "very foreboding sign" just days after the president issued a warning to the media.


Peter Julius Moi, who worked with the independent New Nation newspaper in Juba, was shot as he headed home after work, his colleagues at the paper said.


Residents of the area where he was shot, in a field southwest of the capital, said Moi was shot with two bullets in the back and none of his belongings, including his mobile phone, had been taken.


President Salva Kiir warned journalists before flying to peace talks in Ethiopia.
