Tarek Ayoub, Al Jazeera
8 April 2003

Al-Jazeera cameraman Tarek Ayoub (35), a Jordanian, was killed on 8 April 2003 when a missile hit and badly damaged the station’s offices near the Mansour Hotel in the centre of Baghdad.

Ayoub, who was the station’s permanent correspondent in Amman, was sent to beef up the team in Iraq when the war broke out. He was seriously wounded in the attack and died soon afterwards.
