Gunmen kill journalist in Pakistan mosque
Tuesday 17 January 2012
Police say gunmen have killed a local television journalist in a mosque in northwest Pakistan.
Mukarram Khan Atif worked for Dunya TV, and according to his profile on LinkedIn, contributed stories to US government funded Voice of America.
Police said the 40-year-old was killed Tuesday near the city of Peshawar.
A colleague said Atif had received threats from militants in the Mohmand tribal region and moved away from there several months ago.
The colleague didn't give his name for security reasons.
Last year, seven journalists were killed in Pakistan, making it the deadliest country for journalists for the second year in a row.
