In Malta undermined the vehicle of the journalist, sharply criticizing politicians

Daphne Caruana Galizia has died in a car bomb

The application - filed by lawyers Jason Azzopardi, Karol Aquilina and Therese Comodini Cachia on behalf of the deceased's family - read that Daphne Caruana Galizia was brutally killed when a bomb in a auto she was driving exploded.

While police would confirm only that the explosion had taken place, Malta Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said based on preliminary evidence, indications are that Caruana Galizia was killed in the explosion. She also wrote a blog called "Running Commentary".

The journalist revealed that Muscat's wife, Michelle, as well as Muscat's energy minister and the government's chief-of-staff, held companies in Panama by looking into the 2016 document leak.

He described her as "was one of my harshest critics, on a political and personal level" as he denounced her slaying.

Caruana Galizia herself had been sued for libel over articles she wrote for her blog.

"I will not rest until I see justice done in this case", he said in a statement, calling for national unity.

Her blogs were a thorn in the side of both the establishment and underworld figures that hold sway in Europe's smallest member state.

Daphne Caruana Galizia, who claimed to have no political affiliations, set her sights on a wide range of targets, from banks facilitating money laundering to links between Malta's online gaming industry and the Mafia. According to sources, one of her sons heard the blast from their home and rushed out to the scene.

Caruana Galizia filed a police report two weeks ago saying she was receiving threats, law enforcement officials told Malta news outlets on Monday.

European Parliament President Antonio Tajani in a tweet called the development a "tragic example of a journalist who sacrificed her life to search for the truth".

The data was obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and shared with media partners around the world, including the Guardian, by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) in Washington.

The couple denied claims that they had used secret offshore bank accounts to hide payments from Azerbaijan's ruling family.

Muscat said he has asked the US government and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for help investigating the vehicle bombing.

Prime minister called the bombing 'a spiteful attack on a citizen and freedom of expression'. "The situation is desperate", wrote Caruana Galizia, who leaves behind a husband and three sons.

Julian Assange is known for his anti-corruption campaigns and had great sympathy for Daphne Caruana Galizia's battle against corruption in Malta.
