correspondent abducted in Baghdad


New York, October 19, 2005—
The Committee to Protect Journalists is alarmed by today's abduction in Baghdad of a veteran reporter for London's Guardian newspaper. The Guardian said it believes a group of armed men seized Rory Carroll, the paper's Baghdad correspondent, as he left a house in the Sadr City, a stronghold of radical cleric Moqtada al-Sadr. Carroll had been watching the televised trial of Saddam Hussein with a Baghdad family to learn what Iraqi citizens think about the proceedings, the Guardian said.

Al-Iraqiya journalist abducted, killed in Mosul


New York, July 5, 2005—
An Iraqi television producer for the state news channel Al-Iraqiya was killed on Friday in Mosul after being kidnapped earlier in the day, according to international press reports. The Committee to Protect Journalists is investigating the circumstances surrounding the slaying of Khaled al-Attar, who produced a program satirizing government officials.

Insurgents have increasingly targeted Al-Iraqiya and its journalists because of the station's ties to the U.S.-supported Iraqi government. Insurgents have killed at least three other employees of the station and its affiliates since last year, and the offices of the station and its affiliates have repeatedly come under mortar attack.
