Iraqi TV channel says two of its journalists killed in northern Iraq
MOSUL, Iraq (Reuters) - Unidentified gunmen killed two Iraqi television journalists as they were filming in the northern city of Mosul on Saturday, security sources said.
The journalists worked for Iraqi television channel al-Sharqiya News, which is often critical of the government and
is popular among the Sunni minority. It was not clear who was behind the killings.
“The gunmen exploited this area as it is one of the city’s busiest and shot the two journalists dead,” said a security source who declined to be named.
“They shot them in the chest and head, killing them instantly”.
