The news of the murder of American journalist Luke Somers was a tragedy for the press. He was a wonderful man living a simple life in Yemen and suffered hardships like many in this country. He considered himself as a part of these people.
Kidnappers targeted him and killed him, and America used all its power to save him. Unfortunately, attempts failed twice. He paid his life with the price of freedom, even in a country with risks such as Yemen.
Peace be upon you Luke, and condolences to his family and to all who knew him closely, including our editor-in-chief Fakhri al-Arashi.
