New York, May 7, 2004—The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) mourns the death of two Polish journalists who were killed this morning in a drive-by shooting in Latifiya, Iraq, about 19 miles (30 kilometers) south of the capital, Baghdad.

According to press reports, Waldemar Milewicz, one of Poland’s most experienced war correspondents, and his producer, Mounir Bouamrane, both employed by Polish state television TVP, were shot at by armed gunmen, presumably Iraqi insurgents, while riding in their car at around 9:30 a.m. The journalists were headed toward a Polish military base in Babylon, south of Baghdad, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).
