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 in the ambush at 8 p.m. 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. He said media workers are often targeted by religious extremists.
