Gunmen shot and killed two more Iraqi journalists, one who was killed in his home near Fallujah along with seven family members, police and medical officials reported Wednesday. Abdul-Rahman al-Essawi was shot to death along with his wife, son, father, mother and three other relatives, said Dr. Anas al-Rawi of Fallujah General Hospital where they bodies were taken. Other family members told an Associated Press reporter in Fallujah that al-Essawi was working as a reporter the online NINA news agency and as the media representative of Anbar Salvation Council. The council was formed recently among Sunni tribes in Anbar to fight al-Qaida in Iraq. In Amarah, 320 kilometers (200 miles) southeast of Baghdad, gunmen mowed down Nazar Abdul-Wahid as he stood on a city street, according to a police official in the city who refused to give his name for fear of retribution from militants.
