Salaheddin was driving home from work in the northern city of Tikrit when a bomb attached to his car exploded, according to news reports. He died after being taken to a local hospital, news reports said.
Salaheddin was a news anchor and political talk show host for Salaheddin Channel, a local TV broadcaster in Salaheddin province, according to Ziad al-Ajili, director of Baghdad's Journalistic Freedoms Observatory. He was also the president of the journalists union in Tikrit, local press freedom groups said. No one claimed responsibility for the attack.
