Al-Qaida has claimed responsibility for killing an Iraqi TV journalist, Amjad Hameed, who worked for the government-run Iraqiya television.

"Your brothers...carried out the assassination of Amjad Hameed, the director of the Iraqiya television channel, the mouthpiece of the government," said a statement issued by al-Qaida and posted on an Islamic Web site.

Hmm...Seems to me like he wasn't Muslim enough.

Hameed was shot to death Saturday while on his way to work. His driver also died.

Hameed was the 11th journalist to be murdered since the inception of the Iraqi television station.
