Four foreign journalists killed and injured after explosion in Mosul

A planted bomb exploded near four journalists, hitting three French people and a Kurdish man in the troubled Old Mosul district on Monday, as Iraqi forces push ISIS out of the group’s last and symbolic holdout in the city, told Rudaw news. 

The Kurdish journalist, Bakhtiyar Haddad, who worked with the French team as an interpreter was killed in the bombing, a friend of Haddad told Rudaw.

The other three journalists were wounded, and they are now receiving treatment at a US base in the town of Qayyara in southern Nineveh Province.
