Al-Jabouri, editor-in-chief of As-Saffir, was shot when he failed to stop his car at an Iraqi security checkpoint in Baghdad's Al-Dora neighborhood on March 7, according to the Journalistic Freedoms Observatory, a local press freedom group. The group, citing his family, said al-Jabouri was driving home when Iraqi security officers opened fire.

A CPJ source said that the security officers transferred al-Jabouri to a hospital immediately afterward. His treatment continued in Amman, Jordan, but he died later that month, the source said.
