Call for independent probe into journalist’s death in police raid

first_img Organisation February 26, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for independent probe into journalist’s death in police raid Reporters Without Borders calls for an investigation into the death of Hussein Ali Madan Al-Faraj, a photographer and cameraman known as the “Revolution’s Journalist”, in the eastern governorate of Al-Qatif on 20 February.Police killed Hussein Al-Faraj during a raid on the town of Al-Awamiyah with the aim of locating participants in a long series of anti-government protests in the region. Al-Faraj, who had covered all the protests and funerals of protesters killed by the security forces since 2011, was shot.The conflicting accounts about the circumstances of his death show the need for an independent investigation.Hussein Al-Faraj was killed when police stormed the home of a neighbour, Ahmed Abdelrahim Al-Faraj, whose brother was on a list of 23 people wanted for participating into anti-government demonstrations. The neighbour’s son, Ali Ahmed Al-Faraj, 22, was also killed.The Saudi interior ministry said the police came under fire from the “trouble-makers” and were forced to return fire. Two policemen were also killed, according to the interior ministry. This account is disputed by neighbours, who said the operation began when around 30 armed policemen with armoured vehicles surrounded the neighbourhood and then stormed Ahmed Abdelrahim Al-Fraj’s home.According to these witness accounts, the police opened fired as they entered Ahmed Abdelrahim Faraj’s home, killing his son. The neighbours are emphatic that Hussein Al-Faraj was there covering the police raid with his camera and was not wearing any top garment so that the police could see he was not armed. His blood-spattered camera was found beside his bullet-riddled body.This police raid sparked another anti-government demonstration in Al-Awamiyah, where many members of Saudi Arabia’s Shiite minority live and where many demonstrations have been staged in support of the protests in neighbouring Bahrain since February 2011. to go further News Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Receive email alerts Follow the news on Saudi Arabia June 8, 2021 Find out more Newscenter_img RSF_en April 28, 2021 Find out more News News Saudi media silent on RSF complaint against MBS March 9, 2021 Find out more Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Steve Koehler, commander, Carrier Strike Group Nine. “Throughout work-ups and after a highly successful Group Sail, the TRCSG is integrated across all warfare areas into a comprehensive warfighting force ready to carry out the nation’s tasking.”Surface, air, and anti-submarine elements began training for COMPTUEX separately at first, and then employed different exercises to integrate the teams for mission success.“Each of the units has a role to play,” Koehler said. “COMPTUEX evaluates our ability to engage in operations safely and effectively while providing our crews with additional focus areas so as a team we are prepared for anything.”Joining the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71)for the COMPTUEX are sailors aboard guided-missile cruiser USS Bunker Hill (CG 52), and guided-missile destroyers USS Halsey (DDG 97), USS Higgins (DDG 76), USS Preble (DDG 88), and USS Sampson (DDG 102).
