Brussels: The Maltese investigative journalist, Daphne Caruana Galizia, who had exposed her country's links with the document leak, has been killed when a bomb destroyed her car as she was driving near her home. Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat on Monday said that her death resulted from a “barbaric attack” that also assaulted freedom of expression, according to the newspaper reports.
 

Ms Galizia, 53, had just driven away from her home in Mosta, a town outside Malta’s capital Valletta, when the bomb exploded on Monday. She was named by Politico as among the 28 Europeans who were shaping, shaking and stirring Europe. She had exposed that Muscat’s wife, Michelle, held companies in Panama by looking into the 2016 document leak. Muscat and his wife deny they held such companies. Opposition leader Adrian Delia called the killing a “political murder.”
