RIP: Ali Shafeya Al-Moussawi

I just read on Robert’s blog that one of the video bloggers at Alive in Baghdad, Ali Shafeya Al-Moussawi, was killed. He was murdered in his home–shot 31 times. Josh Wolf writes about the importances of Alive in Baghdad:

Alive in Baghdad is one of the only destinations providing weekly video of life in Baghdad from an Iraqi perspective. The reporting examines current issues facing the country, and also features evergreen material documenting what life in a war-torn country looks like. The program has been profiled in numerous media reports, has garnered numerous awards, and has grown a loyal following.

Al-Moussawi is survived by his mother and sister. I made a small donation to his family, and encourage you to do the same. You can do so via this PayPal account: smallworldnews (at)
