Al Jazeera’s Al Jazeera cameraman dies in car crash
Al Jazeera correspondent Mohammed Naim, who was driving in Denver, Colorado, when he was hit by a pickup truck that was stopped at a red light.
He was rushed to hospital, but died there of his injuries on Friday morning.
“Al Jazeera was on the ground with the truck, the driver of the truck.
He’s gone, his head is bleeding and his legs are broken.
He doesn’t have a pulse, he has no pulse.
I said, ‘Is he breathing?’
And he said, yes, he’s breathing, and I said ‘Is there anyone who can help you?’
He said ‘No’, and he stopped,” Naim told Al Jazeera.
“But then I saw the guy who’s driving the truck get out of the cab.
And I said to him, ‘Where are you going?’
And I told him, I don’t know where he is, he hasn’t been in the hospital, I’m a journalist.
He looked at me and said, I think I saw someone who was injured, and then I started to drive.”
A second Al Jazeera journalist, Hisham Khalil, was killed when a car crashed into a crowd in the eastern city of Homs.
The two journalists were travelling with an injured colleague.
Al Jazeera said it was in touch with the injured colleague, who told the news agency he was seriously injured in the crash.
Al-Jazeera reporter Muhsin Alwan was killed by an Israeli tank near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights in 2014.
The network said in a statement that it had received confirmation of his death from Israeli officials.
“We are deeply saddened by the death of Muhsin Alwan, who passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 25, at the age of 57.
He will be remembered by all who worked with him, especially by those who were with him on the front lines, in Gaza and the West Bank,” the network said.
