Ibrahim was riding his motorcycle when two motorcyclists shot
him in the head, according to Pakistani news
reports. The journalist had worked for several small Urdu-language
papers. He also was involved with a local group called the People’s Aman
Committee, the militant counterpoint of the Pakistan People’s Party to the
armed militias of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement and Awami National Party. The
groups are known for their violent tactics.
Ibrahim, 40, had two children. Although he had worked for
several different newspapers for several years, his most recent job was at the
Daily Extra News. Police told reporters investigating the shooting that they
believed he was killed over an internal party dispute.
