The Iraqi poet Ali Najim al-Lami, a member of the Iraqi Communist Party, was assassinated in Baghdad on Tuesday night, 10 December 2019.

He was shot dead in Al-Shaab district as he was returning home from Tahrir Square in central Baghdad where he had been an active participant in the ongoing popular Uprising since it erupted on 1 October 2019.

Al-Lami, a well-known poet, was mourned by the Union of Iraqi Writers which strongly condemned this cowardly act.

The funeral of the communist martyr took place this morning (11 December 2019) in Tahrir Square, central Baghdad, with the participation of members of Iraqi CP leadership.
