Seneid, an editor for the local newspaper Al-Bashara, was murdered in an evening drive-by shooting, Fallujah police Lt. Mohammed Ali told The Associated Press. Insurgents accused the paper of publishing U.S. propaganda, and they demanded its closure in leaflets distributed in Fallujah, AP reported.

Al-Bashara was established following the battle for Fallujah in November 2004, according to a CPJ source. It was perceived by many local residents as a mouthpiece for the United States, the source said.
