Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontiers – RSF) and the Bangladesh Centre for Development, Journalism and Communication (BCDJC) today called for greater police efforts to find him and the abductors, and deplored the reported death of kidnapped journalist Shukur Hussain.”If his death is confirmed, it will be the second murder this year of a journalist by armed extremists in the southwestern region of Khulna,” noted Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard and BCDJC president Nayeemul Islam Khan in a letter to Khulna police commissioner Moklesur Rahman.”We know it is difficult to keep public order in this region, but it is your duty to put an end to violence which affects the press,” they said. Eight journalists have been killed in Khulna in the past six years, making it the most dangerous area in the country for the press.Hussain, a reporter with the regional daily Dainik Anirban, was kidnapped at night on 5 July from his house in Dumuria by seven armed men who police think were members of the banned Maoist Biplobi Communist Party.  Hussain, 40, had written several articles criticising them and had received death threats over the past three months.Witnesses reportedly saw his kidnappers shoot him in the head when he tried to escape from a boat they had forced him into on the Ghangrail river and then taken his body away. Police have arrested 11 people for questioning.  Another journalist on Dainik Anirban, Nahar Ali, was kidnapped by the Maoists in April last year and tortured to death. Hussain had replaced Ali as correspondent of Dainik Anirban in Dumuria.  A joint fact-finding mission by Reporters Without Borders and BCDJC went to Khulna in March this year, a few days after the murder of Harun-ur-Rashid, a reporter on the newspaper Dainik Purbanchal.  The Khulna police chief told the mission that every effort would being made to identify and arrest those responsible, while a government minister promised to see they were hanged.

By the time the final whistle sounded, the Lancers dominated their way to a 5-2 win over the Vaqueros in a non-conference game at Robinson Stadium.PCC (2-3 overall) outshot Glendale, 23-4, and tied the game in the 20th minute when Sandra Ambrosio took a short pass from Leila Farazdaghi and rifled a 25-yard shot into the upper corner of the net. With 10 minutes left in the first half, the Lancers took a 2-1 lead as Ambrosio’s corner kick was headed in by Michelle Morales.In the 50th minute, the Lancers struck again with Morales sending a pass out of a corner kick to Rachel Schroeder, who promptly one-timed a drive high in the net from 25 yards out. Six minutes later, PCC made it 4-1 on a combination play in the box as Ani Hemelians passed to Juliana Gurule who tapped it to Farzdaghi for a wide-open shot and goal.The sophmore midfielder Farazdaghi finished off a 4-point afternoon (goal, two assists) with a cross to Elena Heuze for the team’s fifth straight score in the 77th minute.“It was gratifying to see our offense score on a variety of planned plays, coming from different directions and by different scorers. These are things we’ve been teaching in practice going back to the summer,” said PCC head coach Reggie Rivas. “After last season, we knew we had to start stressing offense and today we showed we have some firepower out there.”Schroeder, a sophomore midfielder, fired eight shots, four on goal to lead the PCC shooters. The five goals is the most by a Rivas-head coached team in his three seasons, and the most since he was an assistant in 2012 when PCC had eight in a win over El Camino College-Compton Center that ended South Coast Conference play that season.Jackelyn Alarcon scored Glendale’s first goal in the fourth minute and the Vaqueros (0-3-1) finished off the game’s scoring in the 87th minute on a hard shot by Ashlie Barillas.The Lancers next play at Fullerton on Friday, Sept. 25 in a 4 p.m. game.
