ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - The Islamic State, or ISIS, executed a journalist Thursday in the jihadist stronghold of Mosul, charging the reporter with providing information to the national press.
“The Islamic State group executed journalist and cameraman Jala al- Abadi after he was arrested 41 days ago on the charge of leaking information to the Iraqi media in Mosul," said Mohamad Bayati, director of the Nineveh Media Network
“The journalists that remained after the ISIS takeover of Mosul have been seriously watched by ISIS,” Bayati added.
Bayati said a group of 10 ISIS fighters arrested Abadi at his home on June 4.
Bayati said the ISIS militants asked Abadi’s family to take his corpse at the Mosul morgue.
Abadi, who is married and the father of two kids, has been a journalist and a cameraman for more than 10 years in the local Mosulia TV station.
