Saturday, 25 February 2017 10:11 AM

IRBIL, Iraq (AP) — A local Kurdish news organization says one of their presenters was killed covering the Mosul operation and another of their journalists was wounded. 

The Rudaw news organization says Shifa Gerdi, a presenter and head of output for Rudaw, was killed in a bomb attack and cameraman Younis Mustafa was injured on the outskirts of Mosul in a statement to the Associated Press Saturday. 

She was presenting a daily special program on the Mosul offensive, and a statement of condolences on Rudaw's website described her as one of the organization's "most daring journalists".

A number of journalists have been injured in the Mosul operation and in October an Iraqi television journalist was killed covering the battle.
