Navaraj Sharma, the editor of Karnali Sandesh, the first weekly newspaper to be published from Nepal's far-west Karnali Zone, has been killed by suspected Maoist rebels. Sharma was abducted two months ago and his mutilated body was found by the banks of a river near Kalikot this week. Reports said he had been tortured, mutilated, and his eyes gouged, before being shot.
