BAGHDAD — An Iraqi television presenter working with the private Al-Baghdadiyah channel was ambushed and shot as he was driving through a west Baghdad suburb.
Gunmen opened fire on Jawad al-Daami’s car as he traveled through Al-Qadisiyah on Sept. 23.
Daami, 40, and a father of four, died instantly. He is the second journalist to be killed in Iraq within a week after Muhannad Ghanim Ahmed, a radio journalist from the northern city of Mosul, was killed by gunmen on Sept. 21.
The Paris-based media watchdog Reporters Without Borders says at least 200 staff of the print or broadcast media have been killed in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion of 2003.
