Gunmen in two vehicles shot and killed the cameraman and wounded his wife as they were leaving their home in Mosul in the morning. One account of the killing reported that the gunmen used a machine gun mounted on the back of a pickup truck and that four of the killers came out of the vehicles and shot him several more times.
