BAGHDAD: Iraqi officials say a local journalist has been shot dead by gunmen who broke into his house in the country's north.
A police officer said Tuesday that the 29-year old TV presenter, Ghazwan Anas was having his Iftar - the evening meal that breaks the dawn-to-dusk fast during the holy month of Ramadan - when the gunmen broke into the family's home Monday night in the city of Mosul.
His mother and wife were wounded in the attack.
A health official confirmed the causalities. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.
Anas worked for al-Mosul satellite TV channel.
Iraq is ranked among the most dangerous places in the world for journalists, according to the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists. - AP
