A Swedish journalist was shot and killed in Somalia Friday.

Martin Adler was covering a demonstration in Mogadishu when an identified gunman came up from behind and fired a single shot at close range. Commenting on the killing, Swedish Foreign Minister Jan Eliasson said the continued violence in Somalia is unacceptable, and he called on all factions there to lay down their weapons.

The leader of Somalia’s new Islamist regime expressed his condolences to Adler’s family, and blamed the attack on those who want to destabilize Modadishu.

The Swedish Foreign Ministry says it working actively for an investigation into the killing.
