(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) Monday renewed appeal for authorities in Yemen to immediately increase protection for media workers following the murder of a senior journalist Friday.

According to an IFJ statement, Abdulrahman Hameed Aldin, who worked for Sanaa Radio, was shot in the head last Friday, by an armed group in Yemen's capital city Sana'a. He was taken to hospital where he passed away the following day.

Ibrahim Al Abiad, a director for Yemen TV, found an unexploded bomb under his car while it was parked next to his home in Sanaa on Saturday. The bomb was deactivated by explosive experts.

"We stand in solidarity with our colleagues in Yemen to reiterate our demand that the country's government takes immediate action to increase protection for the safety and freedom of the country's journalists and media personnel," said IFJ General Secretary Beth Costa. "They must act now before more journalists lose their lives," she added.

The Brussels-based IFJ represents more than 600,000 journalists in 134 countries.
