Alaa Abdulkarim Al-Fartoosi, Al-Forat TV
28 January 2008
Fartoosi was killed instantly by the bomb that had been buried beside the road near the town of Al-Balad (75 km north of the capital). The Al-Forat crew had been on its way Samarra to cover the second anniversary of the February 2006 bombing that destroyed the Shiite mausoleum of Imam Al-Hadi. Samarra has seen frequent clashes between Shiites and Sunnis during the past two years.
