Saying goodbye to Khalid Mohamed, our relentlessly hardworking circulation master
Scrupulously honest and intellectually explosive, he was a friend to many of us at The Hill Times for a quarter of a century.
Having defected from the Iraqi Baathist regime in 1978 while he was on a student trip to Montreal, Khalid Mohamed studied in India and then settled with his family in Syria before immigrating to Canada. But the problems and the politics of the Middle East never left his mind. Photograph courtesy of the family of Khalid Mohamed
