Al-Naqeeb, a news anchor for the Mosul affiliate of the state-run Al-Iraqiya television network, was leaving his house near Mosul to go to work when he was shot dead by gunmen in a passing car. The station said that "he was threatened many times, but he did not quit his job." Working for the government television channel likely made him a target, according to local reports. Al-Naqeeb was 49.
