This is terrible and a shame to humanity. There should be immediate investigation to the terrorists who did this act and they have to be brought to justice and punished hard for this crime. Condolences to the family of this innocent cameraman and wish them all the strength in this difficult time.

What a great job of restoring 'security' in the disputed territories. The Iraqi Army and Federal police should be proud.

This is very sad news and two tragedy one for killing him the way they did another for doing this crime in front of his family. May he rest in peace and may God help his family to make it through these difficult time. I hope this thugs will be brought to justice and pay for their crime.

The people of Kirkuk need to unify and demand that the Iraqi government provide security for the citizens of Kirkuk if Iraq is going to occupy the city. This is outrageous.

The murder has got order from Tehran, because fascist regime in Iran kill it's opposition by knifing them many time. Daryush and Parvane Foruhar, Shahpour Bakhtiar, Fereydun Farokhzad.......killed in this way.
