Alive in Baghdad
December 15, 2007, in Baghdad, Iraq
Alive in Baghdad reported that al-Moussawi's body was found hours after Iraqi National Guard forces had raided the street where the reporter resides. The Web site said witnesses heard gunfire and that a relative was unable to reach al-Moussawi by phone during the raid.
Brian Conley, Alive in Baghdad's founder and director, said the circumstances and motive for al-Moussawi's murder were unclear. He said Alive in Baghdad was looking into a threat al-Moussawi received the previous week. The reporter had been working on a report about an Iraqi militia group.
Motive Unconfirmed: CPJ is investigating to determine whether the death was work-related.
