Pronunciation of 刺客 Shikyaku or Shikaku

この記事を書いている人 - WRITER -

刺客 means a thug or thugs.  刺 (shi) means to stab. 客(kyaku) means a visitor. So it means someone who comes to kill you. I thought the pronunciation was “shikyaku” but when I referred to a web dictionary, I found that Shikaku is right but now many Japanese actually use Shikyaku as well. So, may be both are fine.
