A cameraman for the independent satellite channel Al-Mousaliya was killed by unknown gunmen Monday in an ambush in the northern city of Mosul, police said. Amir Malallah al-Rashidi was killed at 8 pm in an eastern part of the city by gunmen in two cars, said Police Brig. Gen. Abdul Karim al-Jubouri. The 38-year-old had worked for the state-run Iraqiya television before joining Al-Mousaliya, which was established six months ago to cover sports news, according to one of his colleagues who spoke on condition of anonymity for security reasons. Since the US-led invasion in March 2003, 112 journalists have lost their lives, primarily local Iraqis, according to the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists.
