September 23, 2007, in Baghdad, Iraq
The motive for the killing was unclear, but the crime scene was in a neighborhood occupied by several militia groups known to target journalists, according to local reporters.
The Journalistic Freedoms Observatory, an Iraqi press freedom organization, quoted Al-Baghdadia sources as saying that al-Daami met with several colleagues earlier that day in Baghdad's Al-Mansour neighborhood to plan a young people's cultural forum. Al-Daami worked on cultural and social programs for Al-Baghdadia, writing and researching in his role as a line producer.
Motive Unconfirmed: CPJ is investigating to determine whether the death was work-related.
