A Journalist's murder in Malta, for the New Yorker
On October 16, 2017, Maltese investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia drove out of her home in Bidnija to take care of a suspicious block on her bank account. Minutes later, after hearing the noise of a blast close by, her elder son Matthew was looking at the frame of her car ablaze. Daphne's last words: “There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate.”
Since that day Daphne's sons Matthew, Andrew and Paul have been working tirelessly to bring to justice the instigators of her killing, and their efforts resulted in the arrest of government officials and the resignation former prime minister Joseph Muscat.
In a long form article for the New Yorker, journalist Ben Taub reports on Daphne Caruana Galizia's murder ad the anti-corruption investigations she was killed for. I spent three days in Malta to help visualize the story.
