Gunmen shot dead a television presenter and wounded his mother, wife and baby in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, a media rights group said on Tuesday.

The Journalistic Freedoms Observatory said in a statement that Ghazwan Anis, from satellite channel Sama al-Mosul, was killed and that his four-month-old son was among family members who were wounded.

Police Second Lieutenant Khalaf al-Juburi confirmed the attack and the toll.

Iraq regularly ranks near the bottom of global press freedom rankings. It placed 152nd out of 179 countries in media rights watchdog Reporters Without Borders' 2011-2012 World Press Freedom Index, down 22 from the year before.
