Fallujah, Iraq
Iraqi freelance cameraman Yasser Faysal al-Joumaili smiles for a picture in Falluja, 50 km (31 miles) west of Baghdad November 22, 2004. An al Qaeda-linked group in Syria has executed an Iraqi freelance cameraman, the first foreign journalist killed by insurgents in the conflict, a press freedoms watchdog said on December 5, 2013. The Paris-based Reporters Without Borders said the al Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) seized Joumaili while he was on a reporting trip in northern Syria's Idlib province on December 4, 2013. Joumali was then executed and his body later arrived in Turkey, although the exact circumstances of his death were unclear, the report said. Joumali, 32, was from the Iraqi city of Fallujah and had three children, it added. He worked for Reuters in Iraq from 2003 to 2009. Reporters Without Borders said Joumali was the 20th professional journalist and 8th foreign journalist to die in the Syrian conflict, which started in May, 2011 as a peaceful protest movement and slid into civil war after a crackdown.
