Ouartilan, editor-in-chief of the independent Arabic-language daily El-Khabar, was shot to death at a newsstand near his home in the Belcourt district of Algiers on his way to work at the nearby Maison de la Presse Tahar Djaout. Despite the death threats against all journalists, Ouartilan refused protection and would not change the route he took between his home and office.
