Iraq Papers Protest Killing of Well-Known Reporter

Sunday, 23 March 2014 11:17 AM EDT

BAGHDAD — Iraqi newspapers have not printed Sunday's edition to protest the killing the previous day of a well-known radio journalist by a guard of the country's Kurdish president.

The strike was called for by the Iraqi Journalists Syndicate just hours after the death of Radio Free Iraq's Baghdad bureau chief Mohammed Bdaiwi on Saturday.

Police say Bdaiwi was shot in Baghdad by a junior officer at a checkpoint near the president's residence during what they say was a quarrel.

Iraq's Supreme Judicial Council says it's investigating the incident — the first involving the ethnically Kurdish security forces, dubbed the peshmerga, who guard Kurdish VIPs in Baghdad.

President Jalal Talabani suffered a stroke last year and is being treated in Germany. Few details have been released about his health since then.
