South Sudanese journalists held a 24-hour news blackout Friday after their colleague was shot dead, days after President Salva Kiir publicly threatened to kill journalists who reported "against the country".Journalists demanded an investigation into the reporter's killing, while rights groups have said the government should clarify the comments made last week by Kiir.Newspaper journalist Peter Moi was shot twice in the back Wednesday in an apparently targeted attack, the seventh journalist killed this year in the war-ravaged country. Journalists gathered Friday to remember their colleague as the blackout kicked in.
