Gunmen Kill Journalist In Mosul

Unidentified gunmen have killed a journalist in the northern Iraq city of Mosul, the third journalist slain in there this month.

Police say Bashar Abdulqader Najm, a cameraman for Al-Mosuliya television station, was shot dead on October 24 by gunmen in front of his house.

His murder comes after gunmen killed two journalists from Iraq's Sharqiya television channel in Mosul on October 5.

Elsewhere in Iraq, attacks killed six more people on October 24.

Gunmen killed four people in a drive-by shooting in Baghdad's western neighborhood of Amariyah, and a bomb killed two people in the town of Madain, south of the capital.

Violence in Iraq has reached a level unseen since 2008, when the country was just emerging from a brutal sectarian conflict.
