Al-Iraqiya TV says Amjad Hameed had just left his house in central Baghdad when a car blocked his way and gunmen shot him in the head. Hameed's driver was wounded in the attack.
Hameed is the second Iraqi journalist to be killed in a week. Munsuf Abdullah al-Khaldi, a presenter on Baghdad Television, was shot dead in the Iraqi capital on March 7.
