In Baghdad, a news editor at an Iraqi radio station that provides news and educational programming was shot and killed as he traveled to work, said Karim al-Youssif, an assistant manager at the private, independent station that was founded in 2004.

Nabil Ibrahim al-Dulaim, a member of Iraq’s Sunni Arab minority, was married with two young daughters, al-Youssif said, calling his colleague “another victim of the campaign against journalists in this country.”

Al-Dulaim’s slaying raised to at least 93 the number of journalists who have been killed in Iraq since the Iraq war began, according the Paris-based Reporters Without Borders. Forty-five other media employees — including drivers, interpreters and guards — also have been killed, all of them Iraqi except for one Lebanese.
