Nameer Noor al-Deen, 22-year-old photographer and his driver Saeed Shmagh, 42, were killed during the clashes.

The cause of death was not clear though witnesses talked about an explosion in the area where they killed, Reuters'' Baghdad office said in a statement.

The Iraqi police reported the incident but did not confirm the cause of death, saying "the death might be caused by a U.S. aerial bombing or a mortar attack."

Early on Thursday, the U.S. troops backed by helicopters fought fierce clashes in Baghdad''s southeastern neighborhood of al-Amin with militiamen in the Shiite area, the police said.

The clashes resulted in the killing of 16 people and wounding of 24 others, the source said.

More than 230 Iraqi media workers have been killed in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003, according to Baghdad-based Iraqi Union of Journalists.
