Police say gunmen stormed the home of an Iraqi TV reporter and shot him to death in front of his parents in a northern Iraqi city.

Eighteen-year-old Mazin Mardan was the third employee of the Al-Mousiliyah sattelite channel in Mosul to be killed by insurgents.

A Mosul police commander described Sunday's shooting but refused to discuss possible motives.

A hospital official in the city confirmed the slaying. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.

Mosul is Iraq's third largest city and a former al-Qaida enclave.

According to Reporters Without Borders, at least 230 media workers have been killed in Iraq since 2003.
