Iraqi journalist shot 31 times

Iraqi journalist Ali Shafeya Al-Moussawi was found dead in his home on 14 December, bringing the total of Iraqi journalists killed this year to 47.
Al-Moussawi was a special correspondent for Alive in Baghdad, a respected website run by Small World News, which offers a series of short films about life in Iraq.
American journalist and film-maker Brian Conley worked with a small team of Iraqis , providing equipment and training for them to produce a short film every week documenting the lives of Iraqis in their own words. The site picked up a number of industry ‘vloggie’awards last year.
A new journalist whose work had not yet been aired on the site, Al-Moussawi was discovered by his cousin following a raid on his street by the Iraqi National Guard. According to a post on the Alive in Baghdad blog ‘the morgue report says that Ali took 31 bullets between the chest and the head and died immediately.”
