Thirty-year-old Sabah al-Bazee "was among more than 50 people killed on Tuesday when gunmen attacked a local government building in Tikrit, the hometown of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein," Reuters reports.
Al-Bazee has been a contributor for Reuters for the past seven years. He was also working as a cameraman. He "suffered shrapnel wounds in an explosion," according to Reuters.
"On behalf of the entire team at Thomson Reuters, I wish to convey our sadness at the untimely death of Sabah al-Bazee," says Reuters Editor-in-Chief Stephen Adler. "He was a valued member of our team in Iraq and will be much missed by colleagues. This tragic incident shows yet again the risks journalists face daily in doing their jobs and to bring news to the world. Our thoughts are with Sabah's family and friends."
