Enad, 31, a freelance photographer for several outlets including the defunct newspaper Al-Watan, was shot in a photo print shop in Baghdad's Ur neighborhood, according to the Journalistic Freedoms Observatory, an Iraqi press freedom organization run by local journalists. Two gunmen entered the store on Sabah al-Khayat circle and asked for Enad by his first name, a source told CPJ. When the photographer replied, they shot him. They dragged his body to their car and dumped it east of Baghdad, the source said.

Al-Watan, based in Tikrit, was affiliated with the Iraqi National Movement, a party established in 2001, which receives funds from the United States. The paper closed two months earlier for lack of money and was trying to re-establish itself as a magazine.
