Shamal Abdallah Assad, Kirkuk TV, Kurdsat
15 April 2005

Kurdish journalist Shamal Abdallah Assad was shot dead on 15 April 2005 in Kirkuk, 250 km north of Baghdad.

Assad worked for local Kurdish television station Kirkuk TV and satellite TV Kurdsat of President Jalal Talabani’s Patriotic Union of Kurdistan.

Kurdsat’s correspondent in Baghdad said Assad was driving down Kirkuk’s main street when gunmen aboard a Nissan Primera opened fire. They jumped out and pull Assad’s body from his car on to the street before departing.
