July 22, 2008

Erbil-Hewler, Kurdistan region "Iraq", — The Kurdistan press syndicate on Tuesday called on the Iraqi government to conduct prompt investigations into the killing of a Kurdish journalist by unknown gunmen in Kirkuk city.

“We urge the Iraqi government, particularly officials from Kirkuk city, to speed up investigations into the killing of Soran Mama Hama, find the culprits and bring them to justice,” read a statement released by the syndicate and received by VOI.

On Monday, unknown gunmen killed Hama after he had left his house in downtown Kirkuk’s area of Shourja.

The death brings the number of journalists killed in Iraq since April 2003 to 239,
