A correspondent for the Iranian, state-run, Arabic-language, satellite television channel Al-Alam, he was driving in Baghdad when he was attacked by several gunmen. His colleagues believe he was killed because he was a journalist. The killers stole his mobile phone, press pass and money. He had been threatened a year earlier and moved his wife and daughter to a supposedly safer area. He was the first journalist working for Al-Alam who was killed.
