On October 28, Al-Tineh died from his injuries at a hospital in Amman, Jordan.
Some journalists reported that Al-Tineh was on assignment when he was wounded. A number of CPJ sources, however, said the journalist had been paying a social visit to his brother, who apparently worked at the security post, when the explosion occurred.
Motive Unconfirmed: CPJ is investigating to determine whether the death was work-related.
