Ilaria and Miran – Organized crime kills journalist and camera operator in Mogadishu

While pursuing a story in Mogadishu, Somalia, in 1994, the Italian investigative reporter for RAI, Ilaria Alpi, and her cameraman Miran Hrovatin were brutally murdered.

She was researching a story focusing on the money that Italian humanitarian organizations have been donating to Third World countries, under the auspices of building roads and improving the infrastructure.

Digging deeper she discovered that these “humanitarian organizations” were actually fronts for secret Italian governmental agencies, who were shipping tons of toxic waste to these countries for surreptitious disposal in exchange for arms.

Before she could send their last report from Somalia Ilaria Alpi and Miran Hrovatin were ambushed and killed, an incident that went on to be characterized by cover ups and silence.
