I know the team behind Alive in Baghdad pretty well so when I read this news I was speechless. These guys are DOING what new media is suppose to be about. Sharing stories and giving insight into the things that mainstream media is overlooking. Giving a voice to the stories that need to be shared. To have one of their reporters killed is just....well I don't know. I'm beyond words right now. I've been off line most of the day and just saw the news on someone else's blog and wanted to share.
I just donated by sending money via PayPal to smallworldnews (at) gmail.com with "For Ali" in the subject line to help the family pay for his funeral and anything else. I strongly encourage you to do the same if you can.
