The body of Ahmed Hussein Al Maliki, an Iraqi journalist, was found on 7 November 2005 in the northern city of Mosul. He had been shot, probably not long before his body was discovered.
Maliki was kidnapped by insurgents as he was leaving an Internet café in a northern district of the city just over two months ago. No group ever claimed responsibility for his abduction.
The newspaper he worked for, Tall Afar (Today), is an independent weekly covering local news in Mosul
