An Iraqi journalist working for a U.S. newspaper was killed by gunmen on Friday, an Interior Ministry source said.

"Gunmen ambushed the car of Khalid Samin, a journalist working for the U.S. Newsweek daily, when he was driving in Baghdad''s southern neighborhood of Saidiyah, and showered him with bullets," the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

A Samin''s colleague told Xinhua that the victim called him earlier by telephone saying that there was a security tension in his neighborhood and he might be late.

Later, Samin called again and said the situation became stable and he was on his way to the office, according to his colleague who declined to be identified.

"However, witnesses in the neighborhood called again and confirmed that Samin has been assassinated by unknown gunmen," he added.

On Thursday, two of Reuters'' Iraqi staff were killed during clashes between insurgents and the U.S. troops in Baghdad''s southeastern neighborhood of al-Amin.
