A prominent journalist who played a major role in the Panama Papers case has been killed in Malta.

Daphne Caruana Galizia, whose investigative work focused on corruption, was killed when a car bomb blew her vehicle to pieces.

A politician said her death marked the “collapse of the rule of law” in Malta, the smallest in the European Union.

Tributes to Galizia poured in on Monday evening, as thousands of Maltese gathered in the streets for a candlelight vigil to the reporter.
