An American media watchdog group said it was alarmed by the death of an Iraqi reporter for an Internet-based news site who was shot and killed in Baghdad - allegedly during a raid by Iraqi security forces. The Committee to Protect Journalists said in a statement Tuesday that it was trying to determine if Ali Shafeya al-Moussawi was killed because of his work for the Web site Alive in Baghdad. Al-Moussawi was shot 31 times and found dead in his home in Sadr City early Saturday after Iraqi security forces raided the area and entered his home, Alive in Baghdad reported. In the past, gunmen not affiliated with Iraqi security forces have raided areas while dressed in official-looking uniforms.
