Local or Foreign:

Enwiyah, an interpreter for American freelancer reporter Jill Carroll,
was killed after he and Carroll were seized by unidentified gunmen in the Adil
neighborhood of western Baghdad. Both were on assignment for The Christian
Science Monitor

Enwiyah’s body was later found in the same neighborhood with two bullets to
the head, the Boston-based daily said, citing law enforcement officials. There
was no immediate claim of responsibility for the abductions and killing.

The kidnappings and killing occurred after Carroll was leaving the office of
Adnan al-Dulaimi, a prominent Sunni politician, the Monitor reported.
Carroll had intended to interview Al-Dulaimi, who was not available. The gunmen
intercepted Carroll’s car as it left the office, commandeered the vehicle with
Carroll and Enwiyah inside, and sped away.
