Assange's "already assassinated" comment, clarified

In a roundup post earlier today regarding all things Assange, I noted a comment made by the Wikileaks founder in a wide-ranging BBC News intervew: "People affiliated with our organisation have already been assassinated." I didn't get it, neither did many others, judging by the proliferation of "WTF?" in my tweetstream. A Wikileaks volunteer points to this as the source of that reference: a report of Wikileaks writers in Kenya having been killed in 2009. I cannot yet confirm the content of the article, but I'm updating the blog to note that this is what Assange was referring to.
