Outspoken Maldives Blogger Who Challenged Radical Islamists Is Killed
"A liberal blogger who wrote satirical critiques of the Maldivian government and the spread of radical Islam died Sunday after being stabbed in the stairway of his apartment building.

The blogger, Yameen Rasheed, 29, had complained repeatedly to the police about receiving death threats, he said in an interview with The New York Times this year, adding that the police often failed to return his calls or dropped his complaints without investigation.

'In my case, I get multiple kinds of death threats from different people, because I write and do the campaign,' he said. Mr. Rasheed was a coordinator of a campaign to find his friend Ahmed Rilwan Abdulla, a journalist for The Maldives Independent who was abducted in 2014." - Hassan Moosa and Kai Schultz, New York Times
