The Prime Minister of Malta, Joseph Muscat, called the incident a “barbaric attack” and said that “he will not calm down until justice is done”. He added that Malta appealed for help in the investigation of the murder to the special services of other countries.

Everyone knows that Caruana Galicia harshly criticized me as a politician and as a person, but there can be no excuses for such barbaric actions.
