NewsCO.com.au – Kurdish journalist killed in Mosul battle

February 26, 2017

A local Kurdish news organisation says one of their presenters was killed covering the Mosul operation and another of their journalists was wounded.

The Rudaw news organisation says Shifa Gerdi, a presenter and head of output, was killed in a bomb attack and cameraman Younis Mustafa was injured on the outskirts of Mosul in a statement to the Associated Press Saturday.

She was presenting a daily special program on the Mosul offensive, and a statement of condolences on Rudaw’s website described her as one of the organisation’s “most daring journalists”.

A number of journalists have been injured in the Mosul operation and in October an Iraqi television journalist was killed covering the battle.
