TV journalist Mohamd Karim al-Badrani and his cameraman Mohamed Ghanem who worked for Al-Sharqiya TV were shot dead by unknown gunmen in the Iraqi city of Mosul as they were making report about a local market. The IFJ affiliate in the country, the Iraqi Journalists’ Syndicate (IJS), condemned the killings and called on the security forces to identify and punish those behind the attack. Mosul is the most dangerous city in Iraq for journalists, the IJS added.
