An al-Jazeera journalist was killed Tuesday when the satellite television network's Baghdad office was struck during a U.S. bombing campaign, the network reported.

Tareq Ayoub, who was seriously wounded in the bombing Tuesday morning, had died, al-Jazeera announced. The station described him as "martyr of duty" and a "dear and loyal colleague."

The Arabic-language channel showed footage of the cameraman, whose chest was covered in blood, and said another member of its Baghdad crew was missing.

The Abu Dhabi TV office in Baghdad was also targeted by U.S. bombing, the station reported. Television images showed a group of people carrying a wounded man to a jeep belonging to Abu Dhabi TV. He was then rushed to hospital.

Al-Jazeera showed images of another bomb crashing into the same neighborhood on the bank of the Tigris River. Several television channels have offices in the area.
