An Iraqi television journalist was killed in the volatile town of Ramadi west of Baghdad, the television station he worked for said Tuesday. Ahmed Riyadh al-Karbouli, 25, worked for the Baghdad TV channel in Ramadi, 115 kilometers west of Baghdad. He was killed on Saturday, the television station said, but did not provide further details. Baghdad TV is owned by a major Sunni political group, the Iraqi Islamic Party. The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists condemned al-Karbouli's killing, saying he had received death threats from insurgents over the past four months warning him to leave the television station. "We deplore the murder of our colleague Ahmed Riyadh al-Karbouli and offer our condolences to his family," CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon said in a statement. "Journalists in Ramadi report under intolerable conditions without any protection to tell the world what is happening in this hotbed of the Iraqi insurgency."
