Shaglouf, a driver working for four New York Times journalists in Libya, was killed by fighters loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi at a checkpoint in Ajdabiya, the Times told CPJ, citing an account from the driver's brother.

Pro-Qaddafi forces seized Times journalists Anthony Shadid, Stephen Farrell, Lynsey Addario, and Tyler Hicks at the checkpoint, holding them captive for six days. The Times journalists lost sight of Shaglouf after their capture. Shaglouf's body had not been recovered by late 2011, according to his brother.
