Iraq`s Kurds protest kidnap-slaying of journalist

Hundreds of students have demonstrated in Iraq`s northern Kurdish region over the kidnap and murder of a Kurdish journalist, blaming the local government for his death.



Sulaimaniyah (Iraq): Hundreds of students have
demonstrated in Iraq`s northern Kurdish region over the kidnap
and murder of a Kurdish journalist, blaming the local
government for his death.

Opposition politicians joined the students at
Sulaimaniyah University to express their anger over the
slaying of Sardasht Othman, who was found dead Thursday in
Mosul.

The Kurdish Regional Government issued a statement today
condemning his death and promising to bring his killers to
justice.

Othman was known for criticizing the government in his
writings.

International press freedom watchdogs have expressed
concern that freedom of expression is being restricted in the
self-rule Kurdish region.
