BAGHDAD – An Iraqi police official says a bomb has killed one journalist and wounded another in northern Iraq.
Police Col. Sherzad Mofari says Wednesday's blast targeted the Kirkuk home of cameraman Orhan Hijran, who works for Baghdad-based television station Al-Rasheed. He says the blast killed Hijran and wounded correspondent Mohammed Shahid of Cairo-based Al-Baghdadiyah.
Jawdat Assaf, the director of Al-Rasheed TV, confirmed Hijran's death.
According to the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists, at least 140 journalists have been killed in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003. That figure does not include Wednesday's death.
