NBC tells Mohyeldin to leave his reporting assignment in Gaza immediately, citing ‘security concerns’ as Israel prepares a ground invasion. He is replaced on Nightly News by NBC Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engels, a fellow Arabic speaker who reports from Tel Aviv over footage obtained by Mohyeldin’s crew of Israeli shelling that killed four children on a Gaza beach earlier the same day. No official statement is issued by the network.
