Magazine owner shot dead in Kuwait

KUWAIT CITY March 20 - The woman owner of Kuwait's weekly Al-Majalis was shot and fatally wounded Tuesday as she was being chauffeured to work, the official KUNA news agency and a security source reported.

``Hedaya Sultan al-Salem was assassinated ... when an unidentified gunman opened fire at her near her home,'' KUNA said.

Salem, in her mid 60s, was rushed to a nearby hospital where she died of her injuries.

It said the assailant, who reportedly fired three shots, fled the scene.

But a security source told AFP that ``four men carried out the attack and they have surrendered to police.''

``The assailants fired between three and six bullets, three of which hit Salem as she sat in the front seat of her white Rolls-Royce being driven to work. Her driver tried to resuscitate her but failed,'' the source added, asking not to be identified.

Staff at Al-Majalis, a magazine that covers social and political issues, refused to comment on Salem's murder on orders of the interior ministry, which has launched an investigation.

Salem started work as a journalist in 1961, writing for several daily and weekly newspapers starting up in Kuwait, and was a long-standing and often only female board member of the influential Kuwait Journalists' Association.

In 1970, she became the first woman editor-in-chief in Kuwait when she acquired Al-Majalis, which at the time was published in Lebanon. - AFP
