BAGHDAD, Dec 4 (Reuters) Gunmen shot dead today an Iraqi journalist working for a local radio station, an official at Dijla station said.

Nabil al Dulaimi, a Sunni, had just left his house in al- Washash area in northwest Baghdad and was heading to work when gunmen killed him, the official told Reuters.

The attack is the latest against Iraqi journalists as the country slides towards sectarian civil war.

Last month gunmen killed a reporter and her driver in the northern city of Mosul, days after killing a colleague.

Dulaimi, 36, is a father of two girls aged seven and three.

Since the start of the March 2003 US-led invasion, more than 100 journalists and media assistants, such as drivers and translators, have been killed in Iraq, most of them Iraqis.
