Malta's best-known investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia died yesterday (16) after her car was blown off by a suspected car bomb.

The writer ran a hugely popular blog in which she relentlessly highlighted cases of alleged corruption, often involving politicians from the Mediterranean island of Malta.

Police said she was killed as she was driving near the village of Bidnija in northern Malta.

Pictures showed the burnt-out wreck of her car lying in a field meters from the road. 

Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, who faced accusations of wrong-doing by Caruana Galizia earlier this year, denounced her killing, calling it a 'barbaric attack on press freedom'.

Malta has a population of 400,000 and is the European Union's smallest state.
