On January 10th, the photojournalist, Safaa Ghali, along with his colleague Ahmed Abdel Samad, working for Dijlah TV, was targeted and assassinated by militias operating in southern Iraq, as they drove out of the sit-in square in Basra.

Ghali did not die at once and there was a glimpse of hope to be saved, yet wounds didn’t betray Safi’s body, leaving him dead within an hour.
