Gunmen in the southern Iraqi city of Basra shot dead a correspondent working for a US-funded Arabic satellite television station yesterday, as more violence spread across the country.


The fighting came as officials announced that the results of the January 30 elections, which were due to be announced today, would be delayed.

Since polling day, the security crisis has returned to the streets of Iraq with a number of killings and suicide bombings.

In yesterday's attack, gunmen shot dead the journalist Abdul Hussein Khazal at his home in Basra and killed his three-year-old son, Muhammad.
