South Sudan:Peter Moi, New Nation newspaper journo in South Sudan  killed in Juba
Peter Moi, a reporter with the New Nation newspaper in South Sudan, was killed as he left his offices in Juba, just four days after president Salva Kiir issued what observers took as an ominous warning to journalists in the country.

"The freedom of press does not mean that you work against your country," Kiir said during a news conference on Sunday, at an airport in the South Sudanese capital of Juba, according to Radio Tamazuj. "And if anybody among them does not know this country has killed people, we will demonstrate it one day on them.”

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) says at least five journalists had already been killed this year due to their work.
