By Julie Tomlin

Reporters Without Borders reports that the Kenyan and French doctors, and their Somali driver were killed when a bomb was set off by remote control. Hared was walking by the car when the explosion happened.

A journalist for Somali National News Agency (SONNA), a Somali government-run news agency, and a Somali website called gedonet.com, he was on his way to a press conference.
