‘Panama Papers’ Reporter Daphne Caruana Galizia Killed in Car Bombing

Journalist and blogger Daphne Caruana Galizia was killed Monday afternoon by a car bombing in Malta, The Malta Times reported. Caruana Galizia reportedly filed a police report 15 days ago that she was being threatened; and on Monday a powerful explosive device blew her car into several pieces. Described recently by Politico as a “one-woman WikiLeaks,” Caruana Galizia led the so-called “Panama Papers” investigation that, among other revelations, unearthed corruption in Malta’s government. She also recently reported that Malta’s prime minister, Joseph Muscat, and two of his closest aides, were connected to the sale of Maltese passports and Azerbaijan government payments.
