The bodies of three Iraqi journalists, including a well-known correspondent for Al Arabiya television, were found Thursday near Samarra, police and the Arabic network said. Al Arabiya's Atwar Bahjat and two colleagues from the al-Wassan media company were in the city 95 kilometers north of Baghdad to cover the bombing Wednesday of a revered Shiite shrine. Their employers lost contact with them Wednesday night. "I can confirm that they have been killed," said Jawad al-Hatab, head of the al-Arabiya office in Baghdad.
