Wow what a story I am glad Marwan is safe.

Hamdullilah al Salama Marwan! I am glad you are safe now.

Just a suggestion from fellow reporter: Don’t be in such places without an ID! never. Be careful next time. You are brave and I am proud of you. Iraq is proud of you and your bravery.

Everything seems to be brave in Iraq whatever you seem to be doing. It is a bit na´ve to stand in the open with a camera in your hand and not thinking that security forces automatically assume that your not trying to film the next insurgent attack!

[…] Think back to Alive In Baghdad, which brought us the Iraqi Torture story a few weeks back, and which finds that its correspondents can receive harassment and intimidation, if not worse. One correspondent, Marwan, was recently kidnapped by a militia group, possibly the Mahdi Army. Iraq is an extreme example, but it’s by no means the only example. […]

[…] For other examples of sectarian violence reported on by Alive in Baghdad, see this story about another rocket attack, and this about an AiB correspondent who was kidnapped by a militia. To hear more about concerns with Iraq’s security forces, see this interview with a man who was detained by the Iraqi Army in Ramadi. […]

Marwan states that he is only 21, and is clearly not an experienced journalist. Whoever is in charge of supervising him is hugely irresponsible to allow him to film without proper ID, and to take such disproportionate risks for merely ’supporting footage’. Rather than asking for donations to buy smaller cameras, AliveinBaghdad should invest better security training and awareness for correspondents like Marwan. Thank God he is safe.
