Unidentified gunmen killed al-Dulaimi, 36, a news editor for the privately owned station, shortly after he left his home in Baghdad's Al-Washash neighborhood to go to work, sources at the station told CPJ. The station learned of the killing when a colleague called al-Dulaimi's home to inquire about the editor's whereabouts, the sources added. Radio Dijla had been targeted earlier in the year, when a broadcaster was kidnapped.
