An Iraqi correspondent working for The Washington Post was shot to death Sunday while on assignment in Baghdad, the newspaper said. Salih Saif Aldin, 32, who wrote under the name Salih Dehema for security reasons, was killed in the neighborhood of Sadiyah, according to a statement. It said details of the incident were still unclear. Sadiyah is a former religiously mixed neighborhood in southwestern Baghdad that is now dominated by Shiites after most Sunnis were driven out by sectarian violence. Aldin began working for the newspaper in early 2004 as a special correspondent in his hometown of Tikrit, 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of Baghdad, and later moved to the capital, "where he played an instrumental role of the Post's coverage of Iraq," the newspaper said.
