Raeda Mohammed Wageh Wazzan, Iraqiya
25 February 2005

The Iraqi journalist Raeda Mohammed Wageh Wazzan of the regional public TV station Iraqiya was found dead on 25 February, five days after she and her son were kidnapped by masked gunmen in the centre of the northern city of Mosul. She was shot in the head.

Wazzan was the 21st journalist to be kidnapped in Iraq since the start of the war in March 2003. She is the second to be murdered by her abductors, after Italian journalist Enzo Baldoni in August 2004.
