Gunmen murdered a campaigning Greek journalist outside his home in Athens today.
Sokratis Giolias, 37, died after being shot more than 15 times in the capital’s eastern district of Ilioupoli.
Mr Giolias headed private Athens radio station Thema FM and wrote on a popular online news blog, Troktiko, which often dealt with scandals.
The blog today said two or three gunmen were believed to have shot Mr Giolias, who was married with a young child.
Police said the motive behind the killing remained unclear, but it was not believed to be linked to any of the small terrorist groups active in Greece.
A car reported stolen was found burned-out near the scene of the shooting, said police, who are investigating whether it is linked to the attack.
Journalist groups and political parties condemned the attack.
“I express my outrage and grief at this heinous and murderous act which resulted in the death of journalist Sokratis Giolias,” parliamentary speaker Philippos Petsalnikos said.
