"A Malaysian journalist was killed and another was wounded after there was shooting involving the African Union forces," said Adbukarim Ali, a security official with the AU-backed government army.

The journalists were travelling with privately hired militiamen that foreigners regularly hire for protection against kidnap in Mogadishu, one of the most dangerous capitals in the world.

"The men were hit by bullets when they were in their car, as they apparently were returning to their hotel," Ali added, who said the shooting took place in Mogadishu
