Gunmen have killed a journalist in Ivory Coast's economic capital Abidjan, the head of the Union of the Private Press of Ivory Coast (Synapp-CI) said Tuesday, calling the murder "a bad sign".
Desire Oue, 40, the managing editor of the "Tomorrow Magazine" review, was "gunned down on Friday night at his home by unidentified armed men," Guillaume Gbatto told AFP.
"A former employee of RTI (public radio and television), he was very well known in press circles. This was a murder during the course of his duty," the union chief said.
