2 Local ABC Cameramen Killed in Baghdad

May 18, 2007  •  Post A Comment

ABC News was reeling Friday after two Iraqi cameramen who worked in ABC’s Baghdad bureau were ambushed and killed on their way from work.
Accounts said Alaa Uldeen Aziz, 33, and soundman Saif Laith Yousuf, 26, were traveling home when they were stopped by two cars full of gunmen and forced to exit their car.
ABC correspondent Terry McCarthy said the two had been unaccounted for overnight until their deaths were confirmed Friday morning.
“They are really our eyes and ears in Iraq,” Mr. McCarthy said on “Good Morning America.” “Many places in Baghdad are just too dangerous for foreigners to go now, so we have Iraqi camera crews who very bravely go out, and without them we are blind, we cannot see what’s going on.”
“Today we’ve lost two family members. It really hurts,” Mr. McCarthy said.
An ABC News spokesman said the incident is sure to provoke an even harder assessment than usual of the risks in Baghdad, but declined to comment on what immediate measures might be taken.
