    Syed Ahmed was travelling in a convoy of cars on a remote road in northern Ghana, West Africa, when the vehicles were intercepted by thieves intent on plundering the group.

    A hearing at Surrey Coroner’s Court in Woking was told there was still confusion about what had happened next but the 31-year-old journalist was shot during the incident.

    Assistant Surrey Coroner, Simon Wickens, heard that Mr Ahmed, who was married and originally from Hartlepool, was rushed to the nearby Tamale Teaching Hospital on August 23 but died a short time later.

    The facts surrounding his killing are still unclear, with an inquest not expected to take place until 7 12月

    The inquest heard that a post-mortem examination conducted by pathologist Dr Anna Rycroft after Mr Syed’s body was returned to the UK revealed he had died from a gunshot wound to the chest.

    After hearing the evidence Mr Wickens said: ‘Much of the material needs to be gathered from Ghana and that being the case, the inquest will be heard on December 7 this year.

    It was believed that Mr Ahmed was in Ghana filming a documentary highlighting the charity work of a minority group in the remote north of the country for the Muslim Television Ahmadiyya International (MTA) 通信網.
