Ibrahim, a driver for the Iraqi state television channel Al-Iraqiya,
was shot by unidentified gunmen in Mosul. The assailants ambushed Ibrahim at
about 2 p.m. as he was running errands for the station, according to a source at
Nineveh TV, the local affiliate of Al-Iraqiya. His body was found
riddled with bullets, according to the source and news reports.

Earlier that day, the source said, Ibrahim had driven several camera
operators around Mosul to film footage. The slaying occurred about 30 minutes
after Ibrahim dropped off the camera operators at the station. They later
reported that they believed they had been followed during the assignment, the
source said.
