Khudhair, editor of the news magazine Alef Ba, was killed by unidentified gunmen near his home in Baghdad, the third journalist killed in Iraq in a week, Reuters and Agence France-Presse reported.

The shooting took place just hours after Khudair attended a meeting of the Iraqi Journalists Union, which discussed the targeting of local journalists in Iraq, Reuters said. The killing continued two trends in Iraq: The vast majority of victims were Iraqi citizens; and most cases were targeted assassinations.
