Daphne Caruana Galizia, 53 - dubbed a "one-woman WikiLeaks" - was killed as she was driving near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta


A journalist who led the Panama Papers offshore tax evasion expose was killed today when a bomb blew up her car.


Investigative reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia - dubbed a "one-woman WikiLeaks" - was killed as she was driving near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta.


She had filed a complaint to police a fortnight ago after receiving personal threats to her safety, local media said.


Caruana Galizia ran a hugely popular blog relentlessly highlighting cases of alleged corruption, often involving politicians from the Mediterranean island nation.


In Malta, she had led the coverage of the Panama Papers, a leak of millions of legal documents last year detailing financial details of offshore entities used by the rich and powerful to avoid tax.

Video today showed the burnt-out wreck of her car lying in a field metres from the road.


Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, who faced accusations of wrong-doing by Caruana Galizia earlier this year, denounced her killing.


He called it a "barbaric attack on press freedom".

I mean to say I admire & respect her for being brave enough to bring the light on this abuse; "not like" what's happened to her by the Oligarchs goons.

That's the Price of Truth...:(

Not intending to blame the victim but peers should have made it clear to her the danger in which she put herself.  Truth shouldn't cost one's life.  Meanwhile, the whole story's gone back-burner while Trump fucks up everything imaginable and the rich get off the hook.  Which is his plan exactly.
