Tareq Ayub, a correspondent for the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera satellite television station, died of his injuries following a US missile strike on the station's Baghdad offices, the Arabic news channel reported on Tuesday.

A cameraman, Zuheir al-Iraqi, was hit in the neck by shrapnel in the blast, which the network charged was a deliberate strike.

Rival satellite station Abu Dhabi TV announced its Baghdad bureau had also been hit and broadcast a live report showing its camera position under attack.
