The death of another journalist has sparked concerns from press freedom and safety groups about the dangers to the media in Iraq.
Tahrir Kadhim Jawad, a freelance cameraman, was killed by an exploding bomb that was reportedly attached to his car, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ).
The committee said that it is concerned about “a rising trend of fatal attacks on journalists”, reports journalism.co.uk.
The CPJ recently published research claiming that Iraq was the deadliest country for journalists every year from 2003 to 2008.
