By The Associated Press

BAGHDAD (AP)  Iraqi officials say a local journalist has been shot dead by gunmen who broke into his house in the country's north.

A police officer said Tuesday that the 29-year old TV presenter, Ghazwan Anas was having his Iftar  the evening meal that breaks the dawn-to-dusk fast during the holy month of Ramadan  when the gunmen broke into the family's home Monday night in the city of Mosul. His mother and wife were wounded in the attack.

A health official confirmed the causalities. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

Anas worked for al-Mosul satellite TV channel.

Iraq is ranked among the most dangerous places in the world for journalists, according to the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists.
